About the Author


Hello! I’m Lucy, author of The Smallest Smallholding. I’m a 30-something digital content editor, a mum of one, bit of a greenie, a Potterhead, a vegan foodie, and fan of pretty flowers that attract wildlife. If you’ve decided you don’t want a 9-5 kind of life, want to live more frugally and take control of the food on your plate, I hope this blog will help you along on your own Good Life journey!

How to Live the Good Life?

I started this blog in my 20s because, as a vegan, I love fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, and was really enjoying starting to grow them, along with looking after my rescued ex-batt hens. At first I just wanted to write about my experiences. But the more I wrote, the more I realised that I was taking a bit of a fork in the road, looking for something more fulfilling than the treadmill of modern life in the rat race. I wanted to connect with other people looking for the same.

Modern life can be overwhelming and can feel like a perpetual struggle. I believe that it’s really important for everyone to take time out and live life a little more simply – even if it’s just one day a month! The Good Life and frugal living isn’t just about growing your own super-tasty produce (although that is great fun and a HUGE bonus) – it’s about getting back to basics and connecting with nature, people and building communities, whilst living sustainably and responsibly. There’s also the little money-making or money-saving side hustles to help you along the way!

Join Me On My Journey

My family is my new focus, and my priorities have changed. After over a decade of writing this blog, my goals have shifted from simply providing more homegrown produce and creating my own wildlife-friendly patch in suburbia, to also learning to truly live frugally, and eventually living a debt-free Good Life. I hope I can inspire others to do the same!

Remember, I also post low-cost, vegan hearty recipes that almost everybody can enjoy too!
