About Smallholding Sitting Service

Firstly, thank you for visiting the site.
The Smallholding Sitting Service was setup by Pippa (me) with the help of a few friends back in 2008.
We specialise in managing and sitting, for smallholders and farmers.
We can look after any animal or plant no job too big or small.
We will stay in your home keeping it warm, clean and tidy for when you get back.
We will come out and visit your holding after your initial enquiry, to meet the livestock and discuss their requirements, this visit is free of charge

We are available for weekends, weekdays, short or long sits.
Our location is in Sennybridge, Powys, and the areas we cover are;
Weekends: friday to Sunday: within 1 hour radius of LLanrhystud,
Sunday to friday morning: Brecon beacons, the black mountains, within an 1hr radius of sennybridge.
We are able to do longer sittings if within the lampeter, llanddewi brefi, trecastle, llandelio, sennybridge area.
At present the business is not insured for public liabilty etc, but hope to in the near future.

Below is a profile of me, so you can get a feel of who i am:

Hi, my name is Pippa. I gained the majority of my experience from volunteering part time for 2 years on a National trust estate called Llanerchaeron.
I have experience with most of the traditional breeds of pigs, along with the modern breeds of Welsh and Landrace pigs, Welsh Black cattle, and Dexters. I have worked with Llanwenog, Shetland, Welsh Mountain and a few crosses of sheep. I have sat most breeds of dogs from Great Dane breeding kennels to working sheepdogs, and pet Red Setters to minature Dachshunds.
Smallholding Sitting Service has now been running for 5 years, with a 2 year stop between July 2013 and july 2015.
Back in July 2008 I graduated with a HND in agriculture from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
