New anthology of poems on farming published

Sustain has been delighted to read the poems of Adam Horowitz following his launch at the Oxford Real Farming Conference in January 2018. The Soil Never Sleeps is the second full collection of poetry by Adam Horovitz, published by Palewell Press in January 2018. 

The Soil Never Sleeps follows four Pasture based Livestock Association ( PfLA) farms, in Yorkshire, Cornwall, Kent and Wales, across four seasons and takes an in-depth look at the workings of the farms, weaving the landscape, the animals and the farmers’ voices deep into the poetry.

It also follows a charmingly clumsy poet as he learns more about the land, and the workings of it, than he ever expected to. It closes with a section digging into the ethics and politics of farming, deeply informed by the Pasture Fed Livestock Associations work and outlook.

It also features five exquisite illustrations by Jo Sanders, who illustrated Horovitz’s previous book, A Thousand Laurie Lees

Brexit: We stand at a cross-roads. When the UK leaves the European Union, will our leaders uphold good standards for our food, farming, fishing and trade deals? And will they agree a sensible deal with the EU? We need to make sure that they do!
