Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't disagree, but a small holding can, in the cool temperate climate of Scotland, at least provide sufficient food and power for a family to live comfortably.

It may not be a varied diet, but with a little jiggery pokery, and co-ops help a lot to spread the load, a good living can be had. But the locality has to be willing to allow houses to be built - and more than those completely useless "crofts" which is simply 16th century technology
