Membership is open to everyone. Members do not have to have a smallholding or indeed have any land.

A membership covers all those living at one address and it costs just £12 a year (or £10 in future years if you pay by standing order, for info click here). It is easy to join us.

  • Other activities including sheep shearing days, meetings, visits and socials

  • Advice helplines on different aspects of smallholding

  • Access to the ‘members only’ area of website. Apply to access here if you are a member
