How is it that we have never had any education in agriculture in the Faroes? In 1890 the Faroese parliament approached the resourceful 26 year old farmer Jóannes Patursson to get him to take responsibility of experimental agriculture on his farm. He was also to take apprentices in this attempt at new types of farming. The operation started in 1892 and the first apprentice begun the following year. In 1898 Jóannes Patursson thought that they had the proper basis for a real agricultural academy in the Faroes and he wanted to continue further. The Faroese authorities on the other hand wanted to stop the enterprise. 

Why they did so, what the outcome of this operation was and how it all ended are questions which are answered in this book, where all relevant texts and contributions in this matter have been collected.
