What Is A Smallholdingsmallholding
is a small farm with a property in which the smallholder lives, and land on which fruit and vegetables are grown and livestock bred. The amount of land in a smallholding is typically much more than would be found on an allotment plot, but less than in a commercial farm - i.e. between 2 and 50 acres.
In Australia a smallholding is called a hobby farm
, in New Zealand a lifestyle block
, and in America and Canada a homestead
. The terms are interchangeable, but in South Africa, UK, and Ireland 'smallholding' is used.
