Re: "Hobby farming" or "smallholding" - anyone have experience?

If finances are unlimited, you probably are ok, but if you are counting on income from this, it would be good to prepare a business plan, even if only for your own experience. From the sounds of the property, being so remote, I'm not sure how you would sell anything. The small farms around me, do ok as I understand as they have no overhead and put out their stand in the village or near, with a lot of through traffic, and word gets around. I send the kids on their bikes to get the apples up the road, about 250m. If the same situation was 4km, I wouldn't be doing the same. I know another farmer, full time, that sells via the farmer's markets, but he's more standing around his van day in-day-out full time trying to sell stuff, than working on the farm.
