Just be careful the land owner doesn’t overcharge your. For 4 acres I wouldn’t pay much at all of anything, but give them some lamb each year and a bottle of something at Christmas. Don’t pay horse rents !

No rent, just a fair share of lamb, is the agreement.

Just a hint of a warning:  friendly agreements with neighbours are lovely to start off with, but you have no security.  You need to have a Plan B for if the neighbour suddenly decides you can't have the land again or any more, as of now, so what can you do with your flock?  Such an arrangement can work for some people, but do keep that in the back of your mind when buying sheep, or any livestock

That's great advice, thank you.


A bad start
