This page lists all the UK smallholding groups, associations and societies that I was able to find online. There are a surprising number of smallholder clubs around so it’s likely that there will be at least one somewhere near you!

Following a suggestion in the comments I’ve also included a link to the Accidental Smallholder. Although not strictly speaking a smallholder society or group, there is lots of useful smallholding information and the forum is particularly informative.
Please let me know via the comment facility at the bottom of the page if you spot any mistakes with the smallholder group information or if there are other smallholding groups or societies that should be included.
