Thinking about keeping animals, want to learn how to start a smallholding?
9th March 2019


Description

The Humble by Nature Smallholding for Beginners course with Liz Shankland is a great place to start if you’re thinking about keeping animals, want to learn how to start a smallholding, or just fancy a day on the farm!

Spend the day with smallholding expert Liz Shankland and learn:

  • How to register your land as a smallholding and how to manage the paperwork involved.
  • How to prepare your fields for the arrival of sheep, pigs and goats.
  • The best breeds of poultry to choose for eggs and/or meat.
  • How to keep livestock.

This course is very practical with plenty of hands-on experience with our animals in our smallholder paddocks and animal barns.

Humble by Nature’s farmer Tim Stephens will be giving a hand on this course. Tim has decades of specialist experience of farming sheep and has a large mixed commercial flock on the farm.

A day spent with Liz and Tim will give you the confidence to go home and start making plans for your very own smallholding. Don’t forget to send us updates!

Directions

Humble by Nature is based just outside of Monmouth in the Wye Valley. Easily accessible, situated close to the M4, M5 and M50.

From the North, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye & M50

Take the A40 Southbound exiting at Monmouth, follow signposts to the B4293 directing you through two left turns towards Trellech/ Chepstow. After the series of bends the road straightens and at the top of the hill, with views on your right, take the first left hand turn, signposted towards Penallt. Continue for approximately 1 mile, taking the next available left - signposted 'The Craig/ No through rd'. Humble by Nature is the first entrance on the left.

From the east, Bristol & the M4

Exiting the M4 towards Chepstow and the Old Severn Crossing, follow signposts along the A466 to Chepstow Racecourse. At the Racecourse take the first exit at the roundabout signposted B4293 to Devauden. Continue along this road passing through Devauden, Llanishen and Trelleck. Almost 3 miles after Trellech, with magnificent views on your left, take a sharp right signposted Penallt. Continue for approximately 1 mile, taking the next available left - signposted 'The Craig/ No through rd'. Humble by Nature is the first entrance on the left.

If using a Sat Nav please do not take the turning marked 'Old Church Penallt'. The turning for 'The Craig' is 100m away on the same side of the road as you leave Penallt heading towards Monmouth.
