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.

I’ve been using some of these techniques for 12 years but there’s always something to learn from someone likeminded. The setting is stunning and we had a beautiful day for it. Make time for a local walk if possible for a full day out. Other experiences and accommodation available.

We feel inspired! James did a great job at talking us through the fruit and veggies he grows and how he and his wife have achieved fruit and veg self-sufficiency. He threw in great advice tailored to help us progress our journey. We do really feel inspired and although it is only 1 day later, we have already been donated some wild garlic from someone we were telling about our experience. The handout James gave us at the end will be such a help in getting us started on perennial vegetables, as well as acquiring our own chickens and fruit trees. We definitely recommend this experience to others!

It was a joy to see the smallholding and I especially loved the apple trees and the chickens. James was welcoming and explained everything very patiently and clearly; it was great to have the opportunity to ask questions of someone with so much first hand experience and I found the whole tour really interesting.

A lovely tour of the veg and fruit gardens with lots of specific tips on how to live sustainably. And the best bit - visiting the chickens and finding eggs, all in a stunning valley and with James as a very knowledgeable and friendly guide.

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.
