English term or phrase:High Farming
The term ‘High Farming’ was applied to virtually any type of good quality farming – as judged to be the case by contemporary expert commentators. Low farming was traditional farming by unimproved methods so that High Farming was, by contrast, good quality farming achieved by using the most efficient methods, the best rotations, the best seeds, the best fertilisers, and by the way in which the land was organised. Contemporaries had no specific definition, but they clearly knew what they meant.
