with 2 acres there are plenty of things to have a go at. just remember it will be a learning curve and will take time to master. good luck with it and welcome to the TAS!  :thumbsup:
1 acre of land where i am clearing trees and a swimming pool so we can make the land productive. MK3 hilux single cab pickup which has been completely rebuilt over the last 2 years matt black and cool as! no animals yet except a very furry black cat called Hansel (he is so hot right now)

Hi Michelle - your not far from us - if you'd like to see some wee goats and wee sheep in action before making any decisions you very welcome to pop by for lunch/coffee/tea - we're outside Maud about 25mins away from you - give me a shout

Hi Michelle and welcome from chilly Shropshire.  I say go for goats - big ones.  They don't take a lot of looking after, give you yummy milk and you can make yoghurt and cheese.

 

4 acres!
