Title: Hello!
Post by: Paul83 on January 12, 2018, 10:08:23 am
Morning everyone. I thought I'd introduce myself to all you fantastic people. I'm Paul and live in Northern Ireland but originally from Sheffield.

I've been a long time lurker on here reading all the free at advice.

Recently bought our own place with a Bit of land and looking to bring in some chickens,   build veg beds and may a couple of pygmy goats and of we have space, raise some pigs for our own consumption.

Think thats all for now. Have a good day  :)

Paul

Hello and welcome from Scotland Paul.


Be sure and keep those goats and pigs well away from your veg beds  ;D

The pygmy goats are just as pets.  We promised ourselves them when we moved

Fair enough. I just wondered as you are having a smallholding. Mine are dairy goats.

We don't really have a smallholding as such  and don't have the space for much.  Maybe one day :-)

And sorry, that's was meant to be a grinning emoji
