Description

Humble by Nature is Kate Humble’s working farm and rural skills centre. If you’re thinking about getting animals or just want to experience a day on the farm then it’s the place to go! There are a range of smallholding and animal husbandry courses covering sheep, pigs, goats and general smallholding.

The beginner’s range of courses will give you plenty of hands-on experience with the pigs, goats and sheep. These practical courses will take you through a range of essentials, including: how much land you need; choosing different breeds; administrative essentials and general care such as feeding and spotting health problems. Whether your smallholding dream is a twinkle in your eye, or you’re ready to take the plunge, these courses will get you started.

Always wanted to have a go at shearing a sheep or experience the magic of the lambing shed? You definitely don’t have to have your own animals to come on these courses! Just bring your enthusiasm and you’ll go home with great memories and new skills.

“Hands on approach VERY helpful! Loved the course – brilliant way to see if it’s the life for you.” - Smallholding course attendee
