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 ?
