The New Horse-Powered Farm


This new USA manual by Stephen Leslie with foreword by Lynn Miller focuses on small-scale sustainable market gardening and farming for the modern world. The first book of its kind, it is ‘not about trying to go back to some idyllic past’ but designed to help horse farmers move forward to a more sustainable future. Includes: getting started with workhorses; merits of different draft breeds; training systems for the horse and horseman; ploughing; cultivating; seeding; vegetable production; harvesting; haying; timber work; farm economics; agritourism and more. “…a thorough and practical book for anyone considering horse-powered farming. …I learned a lot from this book”: David Kline, Farming Magazine
