Hi all, newbie here
« on: November 12, 2018, 09:09:29 pm »
Hi everyone.
I have been reading the forum for a few weeks so thought it was time I joined in. I would like to thank you all for the information I have read on here.
I am looking into the possibility of buying around 15 acres and starting a smallholding, I am a builder and a carpenter by trade and my wife is a freelance gardener.
It is just an idea at the moment but would like it to work if possible so I have loads of questions to ask over the coming weeks I expect.
Thanks Simon

Hi Simon
welcome to the forum from a sunny mid wales  :wave:
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.
