After answering the call to feed the nation during the First World War, the farmer of the 1920s had to settle down to a peace time of low prices for his produce. A new generation of farmers and workers had to face the challenges of farming in recession. How they did so is the focus of this book - the changes on the farm of the 1920s and 1930s: what it produced and where, the new techniques and machines for a new age.
