Smallholding swopping

Smallholding swopping

by Stephen Riddell
(Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland)


I am a freelance journalist trying to write a piece on homeswopping from a smallholders experience. Is there anyone I can speak to from the site or a participant that can tell me how it has worked for them . I am an experienced homeswopper myself and am interested in whether the idea works succesfully for smallholders.

I have had several requests from journalists and TV presenters this last month of so asking the same question regarding Farm Swapping.

Although we have had several hook-ups of people successfully swapping farms, I have never been able to get them to share their stories.

So readers, if you have swapped your farm in the past, with us, or with other organizations, drop us a line and let us know about your experiences and whether you would be interested to share these experiences of your farm swap with Stephen.
