SMALLHOLDER TRAINING AT SOUTH YEO FARM WEST, DEVON

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 that you can decide once and for all if smallholding, keeping livestock and increasing self-sufficiency is genuinely the life for you. You appreciate that successful smallholding requires new skills and knowledge and have lots of questions. 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.

Check out our course dates and availability.  You can read about and order our books here (The Complete Guide to Smallholding, Keeping Goats, Keeping Ducks and Geese).
