Membership is open to everyone. Members do not have to have a smallholding or indeed have any land.

A membership covers all those living at one address and it costs just £12 a year (or £10 in future years if you pay by standing order, for info click here). It is easy to join us.

Member benefits include:

  • Ability to attend our training courses and use of the on-line booking system
  • A bi-monthly magazine, ‘Harrowing Times’ click on the 'cover' to view an example magazine icon

  • Free for sale listings in the Harrowing Times

  • Free access to a variety of equipment (including incubators, fencing equipment, honey extractors etc.) to borrow for a specified time.

  • Discounts from many local shops and businesses

  • Other activities including sheep shearing days, meetings, visits and socials

  • Advice helplines on different aspects of smallholding

  • Access to the ‘members only’ area of website. Apply to access here if you are a member

  • Eligibility to join NSTG’s very useful closed Facebook Group

  • And the opportunity to be involved in a community of like minded people
