Hello, I'm just starting out!
« on: August 23, 2008, 10:23:43 am »
Hi all. I'm new to small holding, in fact so new I have not even bought it yet! My partner and I are just at the point in our lives we want to and can make a change of life, so this is the beginning of it. We have found a small holding in Hampshire that we are interested in but still have some more home work to do before we go ahead.  I hope that you may be able to help with some of my questions in the other forums.  Thanks!  :)

Hi & Welcome Bella,

You've come to the right place, This is a great site for help & advice.  We ditched the 9-5 last year & bought a place in France.  Slowly we are becoming Accidental Smallholders too  ;D  It's great fun & I wouldn't change it for the world.  Goodluck  ;)

Hi, Bella and welcome.

We've all been where you are - it's very exciting and scary. Hopefully, we'll be able to help in some little way - even if we never pick up a spade!

Welcome Bella - where abouts in Hampshire are you?  We come from Fareham near Portsmouth.

Now living in a muddy, normally wet, quite sunny today Normandy, and wouldn't change our smallholding life for anything!
