Field of sheep taken on a smallholding training course at South Yeo Farm West


You’ve been thinking about it for years and discussing it forever, but what you really want is a better understanding of what’s involved so you can decide once and for all if smallholding and increasing self-sufficiency is genuinely the life for you. You know that successful smallholding requires new skills and knowledge and inevitably have huge numbers of questions about it all. What could really make a difference is coming on a training day or two that gives you a real flavour of the life and an understanding of what’s involved day to day.


Our courses are temporarily postponed to ensure everyone’s safety.  We will announce new and extra dates as soon as it becomes clearer what is sensible, appropriate and safe, and once local overnight accommodation has reopened.  We look forward to welcoming you and are delighted that there is so much interest. Dates for 2021 courses are now up.  Please get in touch if you wish to indicate your interest, make a booking or have any questions.
