A good compromise
Martyn Buck at The Smallholding Centre suggests a way of getting a smallholding on a limited budget
West Wales has plenty to offer those looking to realise their dream of owning a smallholding and even for those who are looking to ‘upsize’ and increase the amount of land they have. So, what will your money buy? If you want, say, 20 acres or so, and there seem to be plenty of people who do, then there are potentially two routes to achieve your goal. You can buy a smallholding of the right size, if your budget will stretch that far. Alternatively, if you have a lesser budget, you could consider buying the land and the house separately. Whilst this may not be ideal, it is a cost effective compromise.
