Hello Everyone,

I am very excited that i have just found this website !!Laugh

My name is Helen and i am married with two small children aged 1 and 2. My Husband and I havejust bought his family farm back and now own a small peice of the wonderful welsh countrysie. i intend to grow my own veg and fruit (which i have done in the past but time to start again) and we have 8 chickens and a sheep farm but the children personally have thier own flock of 4 pedigree suffolks and we are hoping to get pigs and turkeys next year. I love cooking and baking and make novelty cakes too.

I look forward to give and receive help and advise to you all

Helen xxxxx

Do please keep us posted, Helen. This is like virtual TV (in very slow motion ! )

How big is the farm that you are moving back to?

What do you guys intend to do to maintain a living?

Thanks,

Danny
