Building a new home on a farm
- by admin
As well as the new house, the farm will include a garden, a barn, a shed and a small plot of land.
It is part of a series of projects by a farm group, called the Steel Building Homes, which are aimed at making farming a more sustainable way of life.
It is the latest of a growing number of projects that will see new, more environmentally friendly buildings being built on the farm, including an indoor swimming pool, a garden and a bike shed.
The farm group is now planning to build an outdoor swimming pool and a garden with a small amount of space in it, along with a shed to house a tractor.
I am looking forward to working on this and I am excited about the future of farming as a whole, said the group’s chief executive, Ian Thompson.
The farm will be part of the first phase of a major expansion of the farm. “
We are looking forward, we are working and we will be building on the positive and the good.”

Over the next few years, the group plans to build a large extension to the farm with a larger plot of the land, to provide more space for animals to graze and for farming machinery.
Thompson said the project would help the group improve its image as an environmentally friendly farm.
“It is our aim to get to a point where we are able to be a good, environmentally friendly farmer, and it is important that we are seen as such,” he said.
A group of other farmers and farm groups in Wales are also looking at building on a small piece of land on the small farm of Mr Thompson’s, to create an extension to their existing farm and a bigger farm that will be fully covered in solar panels.
They are also considering building a farm that covers about three square miles of land and could be fully surrounded by an eco-park, to improve visibility of their operations.
This new project will be the first of a number that will make a contribution to the Greenbelt, a project which aims to improve the countryside for people on low incomes and the disadvantaged.
