Hello from County Durham
« on: November 30, 2021, 05:59:15 pm »

I've just joined to hopefully pick up some tips and probably annoy you all with lots of questions.

I have a few acres of grass to look after that was formerly grazed by my parents ponies. I'm looking to keep Dexters and bees from next year. Currently sorting out the fencing over the winter. I already have a couple of lockdown chickens in my back garden and may also look to increase the numbers and put them on the land.

Hopefully I've joined the right forum.
