About Us


The Smallholder is a back-to-basics publication aimed at ‘true’ smallholders. It is a sister publication to Practical Pigs and incorporates Practical Poultry magazine. The Smallholder is published eight times a year.

Each issue tells the stories of those who are deeply involved in this unique passion. There are regular features on sheep, chickens, pigs, goats and alpacas, plus frequent articles on fruit and vegetable growing, land skills and rural crafts; in fact, everything to interest and support the smallholder. The Smallholder exudes a sense of community, mutual help and, above all, celebrates the joy of living and working on the land.
