I have a friend who for 30 years was an estate agent specialised in selling smallholdings in Wales. That's all he sold. He made a fortune and retired early. Thing is, he would sell a place, the people would usually hold out 2 yrs, find they couldn't make out, and then he would sell it on for them. And so it went on. With nearly all the smallholdings. I could give you the details of his successor if you like, but ............................

He sounds like a person who took the same advice as me many years ago.

The advice is "Never dig for gold,just sell shovels".

Try the magazine "The Smallholder", it's a monthly publication which has a properties section :). Wales always features strongly .

Beekeeping is also covered with some interesting articles .. Unlike some other farming/smallholding publications, it thus far hasn't been taken over by the Equestrian Brigade :).

OFF TOPIC ALERT!

Does anyone know what happened to the gent in Wales that used to post on the other forum ?

He had a website with his smallholding and bees featured and was a part time electrician ?
