Calling all smallholders!

Are you starting your own smallholding or self-sufficient community in the UK?

The team behind River Cottage is developing a series about families and individuals who are at the very early stages of establishing a new smallholding or self-sufficient community in the UK.

Calling all smallholders!

Perhaps you've just got planning permission, you're speaking to property agents or maybe you're looking for more people to collaborate with – but you've decided to leave your old life behind and embark on a new one that's rooted in farming, growing, craftsmanship and sustainability.

If this is you or someone you know, and you're passionate about your project, we'd love to hear from you – please write to Mel at with your contact details for an informal chat.
