Welcome to our Home – Fferm Plas Helyg – a ‘One Planet’ Smallholding at the Lammas Ecovillage.
Here we are developing ways to live off the land in a modern society. After 10 years living off grid, we have a lot of experience!
We create income through growing willow for courses and products; we grow food, keep livestock, and build using natural and local materials. We use hydro power, solar power, and firewood to provide electricity and heat. We have 10 acres in all with pasture, woodland and a large garden. We have in total 8 buildings already created – including 2 cob greenhouses, 3 roundhouses and an eco pod still in construction.
Having started here with no spare money, 3 children and a blank sheep grazed pasture, we have found creative ways to develop our land on a shoestring.
We are happy to share our experiences with you. You can volunteer, or come on a tour. You can join any of the courses or eco build experiences. Please do get in touch with any questions.
