A revolution has taken place in the New Zealand countryside, the number of smallholdings more than tripling in the past two decades. The Smallfarming Revolution provides an absorbing and realistic view of the smallfarming life. It covers the great range of farming activities carried out on smallholdings. And it describes how smallfarming is in harmony with emerging trends about working pasterns and sustainable living. The book also contains detailed case histories of 21 New Zealand smallfarming partnerships, of varying ages and backgrounds, leading different but successful and fulfilling lives beyond city and town boundaries.
Diane and Ian Grant have lived on their smallholding to the west of Masterton in the Wairarapa for the last 25 plus years.

Ian is also the author of The Smallfarming Life: New Zealand's smallfarming movement 1977-2006.
