Happy Tuesday! A twenty-five acre certified organic smallholding with two lakes and stone house to renovate, in the Dordogne!
Lately I have been dreaming about buying a piece of land, planting it to create permaculture – imagine fruit and nut trees, berry bushes that you could harvest from, super dreamy – instead of buying a house! I wanted to share that daydream with you. Imagine growing produce here, with free-range chickens, ducks, maybe pigs, restoring the stone farmhouse over time while living in maybe a small house or camper? Seems like a nice way to live.
From the listing on Leggett:

A rare opportunity to acquire an up and running smallholding in the Dordogne. The farm is certified organic and has 3 hectares of woodland alongside grazing and lakes. A perfect opportunity for self sufficient living or business opportunity.
