Having begun without any experience in smallholding, a house move to achieve an annex for my elderly mum-in-law led to us inadvertently having 2 acres to play with which started the smallholding adventure for us. First came a few bantam chickens and a couple of Aylesbury ducks and then this grew to include Dartmoor Greyface Sheep, Miniature Donkeys, Pygmy goats and Bourbon Red turkeys with advice and encouragement from new found smallholding friends.

10 years on and smallholding has become a passion for us too. We have moved counties - albeit only across the Tamar from Devon to Cornwall - to find additional accommodation for my mother whose health meant she couldn’t live alone anymore. Our youngest son found the ideal place - Pennywort Mill - with 2 holiday cottages and 11 acres. We moved over with existing stock and started rejuvenating a very neglected 11 acres: stock fencing it all, making poultry pens and getting water and feed to all the fields was only the start. We developed our favourite stock, the miniature donkeys, Pygmy goats and Bourbon Red turkeys but continue to keep our mini flock of Dartmoor Greyface sheep that started us off.

We’ve now developed breeding programmes for the Pygmy Goats Miniature Donkeys, Turkeys and Aylesbury plus Khaki Campbell Ducks . It’s been a steep learning curve but we are loving the journey so far.
