We farm with new ambitions, never forgetting that there is no degree of separation between us and nature

This unique and beautiful book pleads for a more personal knowledge of Australia's ancient, fragile landscape - a re-evaluation of one of the oldest relationships of all.

Few countries have undergone so rapid a change in land use as Australia since European settlement. On her biodynamic farm in the Hunter Valley, Patrice Newell has spent twenty years trying to slow down that relentless pace of change, and to heal some of the wounds caused by past practices. Ten Thousand Acres is the story of those years. It plays homage to land as the source of life and food, community and culture - as a living mantle rather than real estate.
