Hi from Devon
« on: March 10, 2013, 08:55:36 pm »
Hi, we, that's me, hubby and 2boys, live in Devon. We have 4 acres most of which is an old cider apple orchard which we are regenerating. We grow veg and produce cider and juice and have a flock of chooks. Recently we seem to have added to our little holding with some pigs, that were 3 and are now 15!!! Kune kune x Mangalitza. We also have 4 beautiful Ryeland sheep one of which just produced the most amazing by lamb. We are very new to the whole livestock thing and look forward to learning lots from you guys and maybe even being able to impart some of our knowledge too.  :)
