Where does my food come from?

Dave Selby is a farmer living in Dorset. He first decided to write this book for children after hearing on the news a survey with children about where their food comes from. He was amazed to hear that about one third of children did not have a clue where their food comes from, and most said it comes from the supermarket. They did not have any idea that it all starts on the farm.
This is an illustrated book, written in rhyming couplets, exploring the different food produced on farms and other aspects of farming including care for the environment and using technology.
Copies of the book are £4-99 + P&P. Please contact [email protected] to place your order.
