I am retired and moved from Essex to Spain seven years ago. My wife and I live near Sevilla. I have chickens, ducks, turkeys, goats, five dogs and a cat. All these on 6700 sq metres of land with 165 olive trees. I make my own sausages and I have just started to cure some bacon.

wave Hi Bill.  Welcome to the Forum.  You sound as if you enjoy your life in Spain.

Welcome Bill, am sure you will be able to gain a wealth of information, from the people on this Forum, we are all into self sufficiency even in small ways, most growing and harvesting their produce, making all sorts of Goodies to see us through leaner times.  Tina.wave

We need you to tell us how you spend your days, Bill.  I am happy to see you here.

I'll try that again!

Hi billmonty and welcome. Glad to see another pig doctor smile on the forum.

 

I have done a couple of bacons. I also have my own smoker as well. We'll have to compare notes.
