I am thinking of buying a house in Sussex (UK) that has 2 acres of land (currently lawn), which I’d really like to make into a permaculture farm, producing food for my family, and to sell at the local farmer’s market.
I’m quite clueless at the moment, and am only just beginning my research. I guess the main thing I’m looking to find out (before buying this house) is whether 2 acres is actually enough space to do this? I’m not looking to make much money from it, but it would be good to know that perhaps we could turn a small profit at some point in the future.
And also, I’m wondering what livestock, if any, I would be able to include? Ideally, we’re thinking it will be an entirely vegetarian farm, but we’re keen on having chickens for eggs, bees for honey, and goats for milk/cheese…
Thanks in advance for any advice!
