Humus and the Farmer

Sykes, Friend

Original publication date: 1946
Original publisher: London: Faber and Faber Ltd
Publication status: Out of print

Sykes farmed organically; the health and quality of his livestock was extraordinary. His farm was blessed with a fertile subsoil over a very soft form of limestone called chalk. Typical of books like this, Sykes asserts—do as I do and you’ll have my result. But Sykes’ practices might not work so well on properties without such naturally fertile soil. The book contains much information about mechanized production of compost on the farm.
