Balancing life as a family-business entrepreneur, here's how one woman left a corporate career to become a farmer. Even though her feet don't quite reach the tractor pedals, this city-girl-turned-shepherd found happiness and love with one husband, two kids, grumpy rams, ewes and lambs, Mavis the Sheepdog, and a very fat pony.

Ever dream of reinventing yourself and starting over? Sally Urwin did and this is her story--inspiring, touching, and often very, very funny. Once employed to market the insolvency services of a large accounting firm, now Sally and her husband, Steve, run High House Farm in Northumbria. Built around 1840, High House is a working farm where the whole family (including two children) pitches in. In a fresh and funny voice all her own, Sally tells her story of the shepherding life--which at High House also includes the sideline businesses of a tearoom, winery, and a barn for weddings.

Diary of a Pint-Sized Farmer reveals the highs and lows of the shepherding life and the hard work in making a living from the land. Filled with grit and humor, eccentric animals and local characters, this is the perfect book for anyone who has ever wondered what it's like to pack up and find a new life on the other side of the fence.
