Abstract:

Living Off the Land is a collection of in-depth interviews with twelve women of varying ages, all of whom make (or made) their living as farmers in various parts of County Kerry. While their experiences are varied they all share a love for the land and the outdoor life and an endless capacity for hard work. They reflect on a society that has changed greatly over recent decades and that continues to change as the marketplace, government policy and especially the EU dictates. The voices of these women are strong, confident and engaging.--COVER.
