Hello from Ad and Pam. We have an 8.2 acre smallholding in south Norfolk. We keep (or have kept) pigs, sheep, bullocks, geese and hens. We have a horse that harrows and cultivates and a 1939 Fordson Standard tractor for the bits he can't do. As well as the vegetable garden we have cultivated small areas of the fields, and last winter we planted some fruit trees and 800 hedge plants. 

However... times are changing and we are moving on to (literally) pastures new in Cornwall. Inappropriate to post an advert here obviously so I've put something on the marketplace pages or visit our website at http://www.rushmerecottage.co.uk. We'll be carrying on with some of the smallholding in our new place so we'll be back here soon, no doubt. Thanks.

wave Waving a welcome at you from Cornwall.

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

Hi Shelley. We have found a place (small cottage and a field, down a farm track mile or two from Land's End) and had our offer accepted. All we need now is a new owner for our current place. So if anyone knows someone who's looking, point them in our direction (http://www.rushmerecottage.co.uk).

Nice to greet you. But cannot for the life understand why you would want to leave such a great little smallholding. But keep to nature whatever you do. Remember Cornwall is not part of the UK
