12th September 2020


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!
