Be­ing to­gether

Find­ing a small­hold­ing can be costly, but one op­tion is for fam­ily mem­bers to pool their re­sources, says Mar­tyn Buck of The Small­hold­ing Cen­tre

Country Smallholding - - Feature Property -

Have you dreamed about leav­ing the city and tak­ing on your own small­hold­ing? Per­haps you’d sim­ply like to be able to own more land but, on your own, you don’t have the funds. Have you and your fam­ily ever thought about up­ping sticks and pool­ing re­sources to make that a pos­si­bil­ity, whether to a small­hold­ing with two houses on it, or one with a large house that can be split, or even one with an out­build­ing cry­ing out for con­ver­sion to more ac­com­mo­da­tion. There could be numer­ous ben­e­fits in pool­ing re­sources and mak­ing a move to one prop­erty as an ex­tended fam­ily. Plus of course, the ex­tended fam­ily pro­vides more hands and more skills. Join­ing to­gether with another gen­er­a­tion of your fam­ily might be a great way to make a dream a re­al­ity.
