Entering a New Era
This chapter discusses the second experience of alternative agriculture which returned after an interlude of some 100 to 150 years. The situation of farmers was dire in 1656. Prices were falling and many faced bankruptcy. Because of these events, Parliament approved the Act of 1656 which gave farmers the freedom to export grain, cattle, horses, meat, and dairy produce.
