Hello from Ille-et-Vilaine, France
« on: October 28, 2007, 09:12:57 am »
Hi all, what a great site - I feel at home already.  We have an old delapidated farm in Brittany.  We are just getting to grips with it and its all very overgrown and in a mess.  We have had a small about of poultry and a few rabbits and a few sheep for a while now but we are looking forward to increasing our livestock with pigs and cows in the not too distant future.

We will start renovating our old house soon too - so lots of work ahead!

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Tina

Welcome. I look forward to hearing all of your news.

What type of pigs do you think you'll get? We're collecting our first pair of Oxford Sandy & Blacks on Saturday - I'm so excited!   ;D

Best wishes

Hi Tina, welcome from another expat.  What type of pigs will you be getting.  Breeders or eaters?

Hi Tina - looking forward to hearing all of your news!

If your renovation is anything like ours here in Normandy, the animals will live in the lap of luxury whilst you are still dreaming of 'what potential your beautiful relic' has!

Good luck!
