Title: Hello From Derbyshire
Post by: Olong82 on September 08, 2017, 02:01:11 pm
Hi there everyone,
I am a little new to all this my friend and our families are starting up a smallholding between Lea and Cromford in Derbyshire. I am looking to find some other people in the area to chat to and pick the brains of to help us get this smallholding off the ground.

Any help greatly appreciated

Ollie

 :wave: and welcome from a bit further away in Shropshire. There are a few members in Derbyshire and I'm sure one will be along in a while.

Hi Ollie,

I'm over near Bakewell but drive through Cromford on the way to work.

We keep Sheep mainly but we do have goats, chickens, ducks and run a few weaners twice a year.

Drop me a message if theres anything I can help with.

Cheers, Tim
