October saw us in the rural surrounds of Shropshire, looking after a small holding with horses, sheep, chickens and cats.
Where space allows, folk seem to be coming back to the idea of self-sufficiency, even if it is just to keep a few hens for eggs.
Their set up was perhaps a bit too self sufficient for most people. On our sits we do find that elements of self sufficiency, whether it be a veggie plot or just some hens, do feature.
At the end of the day, with flora and fauna, you reap far more than you sew.
