Hello from Wiltshire!

Post: # 201481Post pigchicks »

Joined up yesterday - have the need to share my experiences and learn of others as I used to be a city boy but seem to have found myself in the Wiltshire countryside rearing 20 hens, 3 pigs and growing about 2 allotments worth of fruit and veg!

Seems like a great forum - already bought a few of the books, just a privilege to be a part of a great movement!

I hope I can get some help from everyone as I don't really know what I'm doing - my ethos is to just do it! It's working so far! :salute:
I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig, you get dirty; and besides, the pig likes it.
