Hi I'm Zelda and have only found this great website today!

I have a smallholding of 3 acres at Spurn Point in East Yorkshire. We have been here 5 years and have succesfully grown, veg, fruit (apples, plums and berries). We have chickens and ducks and Kune Kune pigs. The pigs are absolutely fantastic, I had a pig when I was younger however the Kune Kune variety are so sociable and friendly they are great to have around and do not taste too bad either. We recently had two litters from our girls and have succesfully sold most of these, only one girl and some castrated boars left, should anyone be interested.

We work full time, however I consider my full time job as rest time and the smallholding as the really hard work although extremely rewarding and enjoyable.

I'll try and find out how to post some photos soon!
