Hi there, My Square Sparrow blog ( http://square-sparrow.com/ ) is about life on our 5-acre smallholding, nicknamed The Sparrowholding, near Loch Leven - including the antics of our Shetland sheep (known as the "chocolate sheep"), the ongoing weed war in our long-suffering polytunnel and the joys of country life in general. Would be delighted  if you feel able to share it :-) Best wishes, Karen

I do have a commercial enterprise and I run a blog with it. As it has many articles around my expertise I'm hoping it will provide information to the members. If it is not OK I understand.

I haven't got a blog set up yet, but I would recommend a resource for anyone who wants to set up a smallholding blog easily.

The hPage Website Builder (https://www.hpage.com) is a great software if you want to create a blog or website about smallholding. It's free unless you want the upgraded features.

Hello, after a lot of upheaval etc we are in France and I would love to share my FB blog page if thats ok.  https://www.facebook.com/SustainableSmallholding/

We used to have a smallholding in Cornwall with an ag tie property.  After a successful few years commercially making cider we had a change in the family dynamics and decided to up sticks and move to France - where - guess what - we are smallholders.  Ive planted another orchard here and brought my equipment and we made our first juice & cider in September last year, exactly a year after we moved.  I've also written a book, which I mentioned a year or so ago on here briefly and its out on general release at the start of May.  Dont know if Im allowed to tell you about it, but if so, I will post again.  Its a practical guide to sustainable and profitable smallholding, based on what we were doing in Cornwall and what I learned from other smallholders when I worked for both the Rural Business School and Duchy College.
Now that Ive had my cataract done, I feel more able to spend time again chatting about things I love, although Ive been following the forum.
