 macgro7 so does not one keep livestock and horses?! Sweden and New zealand are out, they don't have those wonderful old english buildings  :D


muddy puddle: yes we would not be making a final decision for some time and only if we get stationed in europe most likely. I am just trying to get a feel for what I need to find out and if we would be able to have a semblance of what we see as homesteading. And if we could live with the differences!


That is a lot of oversight for livestock! But I imagine once you know what you're doing it's fairly simple

Yes but only if your land is not classed as agricultural.
Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.

No, every holding (farm) has a number which you have to submit to defra when you move the animals there.

There is nothing stopping you having a  horse or two  grazing with your livestock you just cant have only horses on agricultural land.

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.
