Now I have the image of a medieval lord in full armour, hacking away at the brambles...

Probably why it was called the futile system.

I expect they all go to Bosworth, it's only a few miles away!

I do expect to have the land long term.

I don't really want to make money out of it, it's just a hobby. If it produces something I would otherwise buy or gift, that would be perfect. I could only sell or make money if it's offsite and discreet - there has been the most enormous row over planning and I don't want to go there. I don't want to commit the daily visits of keeping animals at the moment. I might do in the future, which is why I'm not putting it all down to trees. I'll need to maintain it, of course, but it would be nice to have a purpose. I mostly want it for fruit and veg, but I'll have to do something with the rest of it or I won't be able to get to that bit!

ETA - ha ha at Sean and Rob.

What about herbs? Perennials such as thyme, sage, oregano, savory, lavender. Is rosemary hardy for you? Then all the annual herbs such as a diversity of basils, summer savory, dill.

Sell bunches of fresh herbs. Make herbal vinegars, infused oils, flavored sugars, seasoned salts, flavored butters . . . . the possibilities are endless.
