Sustainable Smallholding
Lorraine Turnbull wanted to be a smallholder since she was five years old. After running a successful gardening business in Glasgow she uprooted herself and her family and moved to a run-down agriculturally tied bungalow in Cornwall. She retrained as a teacher and taught horticulture at both adult & further education level, whilst running a one acre smallholding. After working as a Skills Co-ordinator for The Rural Business School, she began commercial cider making in 2011 and until recently ran a profitable small craft cider business.

In 2014 she was recognised for her contribution to sustainable living by winning the Cornwall Sustainability Awards Best Individual category. She has written occasional articles for Country Smallholding and Smallholder magazines and after successfully removing the Agricultural Occupancy Condition on her home she relocated to France; where unsurprisingly, she continues to run a smallholding and make cider.
