the initial years there would not be a surplus payment as crops have
to be grown, fruit trees have to mature, and livestock has to be
bred and given the time to grow.
Rare breeds are
another interesting venture being considered, maintaining and
preserving stocks some traditional breeds going. The sheep breeding
enterprise will involve cross-breeding the Hebridean with the local
South Down ram, taking them to the Hoggets stage. The Hebridean is a
very lean bred, while the meat from the South Down lost popularity
due to its high fat content. To combine these two breeds would
create an excellent product.
Herbal crops are
another option being considered, and an amount of land could be
utilized for timber production, including sweet chestnut and hard
woods, as part of a long-term investment.

with amazing views towards the South Downs with a good access road.
