comment Blanket term for things we often buy at grocery store that are not groceries, e.g., toilet paper, laundry detergent, window cleaner, saran wrap
I think "sundries" is reasonably well-known here in the UK as well as in the republic of Ireland. Even if UK supermarkets use it less than those in IE. It was the first word I thought of when reading the question.

Re size: At least one definition of minibeast is any invertebrate that fits in the palm of a hand. So that rules out mice and large crabs.

comment What is a “moorland farmer”?
In the UK, the term "farming" encompasses both arable farming and livestock farming. It is possible to be a livestock farmer (e.g. a "sheep farmer") without performing any ploughing or other cultivation of plant crops. Of course, many farms are mixed and farmers may grow crops to feed their animals. Not all do. In (some parts of) the USA maybe that is called ranching instead of farming.

The Ordnance Survey names them moors on their 1:25000 maps. It probably reflects long-standing local usage.

comment What is a “moorland farmer”?
There are small moors, in central England, that are lowland boggy areas. It is land that is uncultivatable but potentially usable for grazing cattle or sheep.
