* REPORT: Small is Successful - Creating Sustainable Livelihoods on Ten Acres or Less

URL = http://www.ecologicalland.coop/sites/ecologicalland.coop/files/Small_is_Successful.pdf


Description

"Our report - Small is Successful - examines eight smallholdings with land-based businesses on 10 acres or less. The smallholdings demonstrate that economically viable and highly sustainable land based livelihoods can be created on holdings of this size. While the incomes generated would be described as modest, none of the smallholdings receive subsidies, and the income we have examined does not include money from non-agricultural activities, such as any courses, consultancy work or B&Bs that the smallholders also provide."
