Hi Guys
I have a five acre plot in Claverley, Shropshire and recently found TAS while searching for info on sheep. I bought my plot to grow organic fruit trees 6 years ago and now have about 300 fruit and 300 non fruiting trees (chosen for being wildlife friendly), a 200m hedge, a wildlife pond (dug this winter), a wide variety of wildlife and 4 recently acquired shropshire round sheep for grass management.
I hope to benefit from forum and pass on some of my experiences.

 :wave: from Shropshire. I'm not that far from you and I also grow fruit - just a few trees though. Nothing on your scale.
