Any British (or even European) folks here homesteading/rural living? There is a wonderful wealth of conversation about US and Canadian life in this area, but I can't seem to find anything from families across the pond. A lot of the info around is still very helpful, but the actually set up can be so different (espcially planning permission and land use)
I have a dream of setting up a co-housing homestead with a small selection of friends and their families. However britain (specifically England) seems to have been stung by the rich city workers living in the rural outskirts of towns and cities and as a result small farms seem completely unaffordable to frugal eco livers like myself who just want a small piece of the world to support my family on. I guess I am hoping there are other Brits out there to reassure me that is is possible and this isn't just a pipe dream like everyone keeps telling me.
I look forward to hearing from any one who has insight really :)
