The Victorian farmer occupied a pivotal role in rural society, paying rents to the landowner and providing employment for the labourer. This book explores the world of the farmer during Queen Victoria's reign, which was a period of considerable change on the farm as the forces of industrialisation made themselves felt. Using contemporary observations, illustrations and museum collections, David J. Eveleigh looks at the working farmer and everyday life in the farmhouse - the furnishings and household tasks. The picture which emerges is more complex and more fascinating than the romantic images which so often shape our views of farming life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This little book, barely more than a booklet, presents a fascinating look back at farms and their owners in England during Victorian days. I think a lot of us romanticize Victorian Days, but this book definitely removes the romantic blinders, so to speak, about life for those living in the countrysides. We learn about the various types of homes they lived in, such as once-glorious manors, medieval structures, and homes built of various stones with thatched roofs. Even the most humble farmhouses included a parlour, a room set aside for the family to relax in privacy. This is a highly interesting book, and at the end I just wished it was longer!" -For Immediate Release Reviews / forimmediatereleasereviews.com (December 2009)
