Author Biography - Rosemary Champion

Liz Wright edited Smallholder magazine for over twenty years and is currently editor of Smallholding (formerly Practical Sheep, Goats & Alpacas magazine). She is the author of a number of books, including Choosing and Keeping Ducks and Geese, Keeping Pet Ducks, Self Sufficiency, A Practical Guide to Modern Living and Keeping Chickens. She also appears on the radio regularly. Liz lives on a smallholding in Cambridgeshire and has kept most of the livestock mentioned in the book in her 30 years of smallholding. She is currently concentrating on her flock of Muscovy ducks and learning how to grow cut flowers for sale. Native ponies are her passion and she has donkeys too. Next year she hopes to acquire some Babydoll Southdown sheep. Rosemary Champion, aka the Accidental Smallholder, runs a 12-acre smallholding in the east of Scotland and is a driving force in the creation of the Scottish Smallholder Festival. She started her website to help other people who are interested in smallholding to find their way, and to share her experiences.
