I am an experienced AirBnB host, and have been giving tours of the smallholding for almost a decade.

At Farlands, we are self-sufficient in growing fruit and vegetables. We grow a large variety of crops, from spinach to good king henry to globe artichokes. We keep chickens, and ducks, and rear turkeys at Xmas. We have two beehives.

We grow soft fruit, and have an orchard of 65 varieties of apples in addition to pears and plums. I graft all the trees. We’re experimenting with perennial veg, and trying to move away from sowing/planting every year. Although we’re not strictly organic (we’re not inspected) we stick to organic methods. We’re no-dig.

I give presentations to interested groups on self-sufficiency and apples, and I’m a member of the Northern Fruit Group.

We came to James's smallholding to learn more to take back to our allotment (this is only our second year so we have a lot to learn!). James took that into account and gave us countless helpful tips and shared his extensive knowledge with us. He made us feel very welcome, and we really enjoyed the afternoon and left feeling very inspired.

James's tour was thorough, informative, practical and very helpful. James was generous enough to share tips, best practice and contacts with us. His explanations were very easy to follow and put into practice at home. We will definitely be coming back for the grafting course in March. Thanks for a great experience!

Inspirational tour of James’s beautiful site. The tour exceeded our expectations, a fantastic introduction to a sustainable way of living. Perma culture, perennial veg, no dig techniques were all new to us and covered with passion. We would highly recommend this tour, you learn so much in a short space of time, and it has got our minds racing already.

A fantastic tour if you’re considering fruit and veg growing, or setting up your own smallholding. It’s a great way to see how much one person can achieve. Great advice and tips. Really inspiring and James is a lovely man willing to share genuine ideas based on his real experience of going for the ‘good life’. 5⭐️ trip! Thanks for having us! 😁

Would thoroughly recommend this experience! James was a knowledgeable host and made everyone feel welcome. The small holding was much bigger than I was expecting, and James's passion for all things growing was really inspiring. Even if you’re not interested in gardening or growing it’s still a great experience in beautiful surroundings (even my dad who hates gardening really enjoyed it!)
