Hello and welcome

We have a litter of pedigree Berkshires born just over a week ago, they will be ready as weaners at beginning of May. We are just outside newark Notts, so not that far from you, if you are interested. If you would like any more details or some pictures you can email me leo.gti@tesco.net

Check the various sites of the rare breed clubs/societies. You'll find experienced breeders there.

ok jackie
we have taworth cross weaners ready end of march, outdoor reared 40 each, discount for 3 or more
we will have pedigree berkshires, british lops and mangalitzas later in the year, pedigree quality 60 pure bred meat waeners 45

we also have rare breed poultry and turkeys, hatching eggs, and young birds when available ;D

we breed northern dairy shorthorn and traditional hereford cattle and occationally have some for sale (although this is pretty rare ;D)

we are also happy to talk with people with no obligation to buy anyting, we all had to start out and getting help and advice when new to the game can be difficult, untill you have made contacts, it helps to show people that the dream life is not all sunny and fun, but bl**dy hard work, with plenty of mud!!! i do wish we had bought sandy soil when buying our land ;D
