What the media say

Country Life did a big feature about hobby farming in their August 2012 issue, and guess who was included in their recommendations of where to learn to be a smallholder?

The Ecologist published a long article about our cob oven building course in June 2014.

Good old Country Smallholding Magazine had a 3 page feature about us in their February 2014 issue.

We were delighted to have Lucy Halsall, Editor of Grow Your Own magazine, join one of our Introduction to Smallholding weekends.  This is just a bit of what she had to say:
"If you’d like to glean a huge amount of advice and gain the confidence to start out with your own smallholding, I can’t recommend this two-day course enough (plus, you’ll get to sample some amazing rural Devonshire cooking as Debbie and Andrew are both almighty cooks, to boot)" Lucy Halsall, Editor, Grow Your Own Magazine, May 2012.

W1 magazine featured a number of our courses in September 2011.

The Rare Breed Survival Trust magazine, The Ark, featured our Living with Livestock courses in its October 2010  issue and then had a nice piece in Summer 2013 on one of our boars being exported to Germany.

Duchy College Rural Business School have supported a number of participants on our courses.  They have produced a pack of case studies focussing on vocational support in the farming sector, including our own D.I.Y Website course for farmers, smallholders, breed societies and small businesses.
