Taking the plunge
« on: October 07, 2021, 12:53:38 pm »
Hi everyone, just had an offer accepted on a 20 acre smallholding up in Aberdeenshire, Scotland

My partner is hoping to get going with rare breeds of cattle, goats and sheep.

I will be kitting out one of the steadings as commercial kitchen, and now have space for my cars at last in one of the barns

Will be asking many questions over the winter trying to get everything ready, including machinery and stock

Cheers Steve

Hello and welcome! We're an hour / two hours south of you. We breed Shetland cattle - if your OH wants to come and meet them, you're both more than welcome.
