Suffolk Smallholders Society


The Suffolk Smallholders Society is a non- profit group of like minded people interested in smallholding, self sufficiency, allotments, fruit and vegetable growing and animal husbandry on a small scale.

We have a varied membership, ranging from people with a tomato plant growing on the window sill to smallholders and small farmers with 10s of acres to keep them busy.

Membership of the Society is open to all families who have an interest in smallholding and the countryside and currently stands at around 280 member families, mainly from Suffolk but also from Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. We also have a few members from further afield.

The Society runs a varied diary of training events (From group sessions to one to one), regular open days to members properties (called Nosey Sundays) and access to an online community forum.
