Summary Note Who's Minding the Farm? is a call to action containing all Patrice Newell has learned in more than thirty years of hard work on her property Elmswood, near Gundy in the Hunter Valley. It is also a book of hope, showing that the old agriculture is now the new agriculture - the farming of the future. Patrice Newell has dedicated her life to understanding what it takes to create a sustainable and healthy agricultural business. Who's Minding the Farm? shows that it takes minds, muscles and conscious decisions to manage the land, to build a sustainable, organic alternative to industrialised farming. We must all work to conserve our most crucial assets: soil and water, and repair the havoc caused by land clearing, toxic chemicals, feral plants and animals. Each one of us, in our consumption choices and how we live influences the management of the land.
