A Little Bit About Us

Many moons ago, in the deep dark recesses of 2002, Ruth ‘The Big Cheese’ Tott took the plunge and grabbed the chance of redundancy from the Farmers Guardian newspaper to start her own publishing and book retailing company, Farming Books and Videos. After 3 years hard graft, Ruth’s Husband Paul Melnyczuk joined the company as fellow Director so that they could concentrate 100% on building up and expanding the business that had already taken over much of their lives (not to mention the garage and spare room!).

In 2007 they changed the name to The Good Life Press. and in 2008 launched the monthly magazine, Home Farmer.  Their instincts and gamble paid off as Home Farmer is now the UK's fastest growing niche title with a readership of over 24,000 a month.

10 years on Both Ruth and Paul remain passionate about the market they serve and The Good Life Press remains very much a small, cottage business with ethics to match.  When you ring it is Ruth or Paul who answers, when you order a book it is Ruth or Paul who pack it and when a mistake has been made (fortunately not that often) it is Ruth or Paul who have made it - although Paul will try and lay the blame 100% on Ruth or Suzi, the office dog!   Please note that this website is not our main one.
