I've become more and more interested in Permaculture, self sufficiency, and farming over the past few years. I live in Yorkshire, U.K and I'm fast approaching 50 !
I'm considering selling up here and have my eye on a "petite ferme" (small farm in Mid france), everyone i know thinks I've a screw loose !!
The plan is to buy the place and refurbish the barn in to a 3 bedroom property with an extension to form 2 additional properties and perhaps a "bunkhouse for 12 people", to "rent out /at minimal/nominal cost" with a view to living and working on the farm, ............what sort of interest would i get ?
Personally, I would love a chance like that in the French countryside. Add a bicycle and a chance to tour agricultural/forest regions in quiet regions would be almost a dream. Very best wishes for your progress and success !
