  • Description

    Description

    We are an off-grid 1 hectare smallholding. There are veg gardens and a polytunnel in which we aim to grow as much of our own veg as possible, as well as a developing "forage garden" created by underplanting an existing orchard, and a medicinal herb garden. We run a small herb and veg plant nursery which trades in the local market, alongside a herbal medicine practice.
