I would be interested to hear reports from you if you do decide on that approach. I am sure you are aware of the terraced vineyards in the Douro and some of the German vine areas on extremely steep slopes. Similarly terraced olives were common here too. There are still a few areas. I know of one about 20 miles from where I live, but it appears to be neglected now. Hearsay only, but I am told that vegetables, and occasionally a fruit tree instead of a vine or olive, were planted in these terraces. There is still a lot of scope in these places for people who are prepared to put in hard work. I reckon you, @KMA, and a few others that post in this section of the forum would really enjoy the challenge of a few acres around here. Obviously you would not make much (if any) money, but you would enjoy life if you eat meat, cheese, lots of vegetables, drink wine, and do not tell the locals how to do things - just do it your way and let them slowly realise for themselves that there is more than one way to skin a cat.
