A Little Bit About Us

Many moons ago, in the deep dark recesses of 2002, I took the plunge and grabbed the chance of redundancy from the Farmers Guardian newspaper to start my own publishing and book retailing company, Farming Books and Videos. After 3 years hard graft hubby Paul joined left his work to join me so that we could concentrate 100% on building up and expanding the business that had already taken over much of our lives (not to mention the garage and spare room!).

In 2007 we changed the name to The Good Life Press. and in 2008 launched the monthly magazine, Home Farmer. 

Over a decade later we are both passionate about the market we serve and our business remains very much a small, cottage business with ethics to match.  When you ring it is us who answer, when you order a back copy of the magazine it's us who pack it and when a mistake has been made (fortunately not that often) it's us who've have made it - although Paul will try and lay the blame 100% on Ruth or Suzi, the office dog!
