Hello from Caerphilly

Hey folks,

M'name is Sam and I live at the northern end of Caerphilly county on my parents' 18 acre smallholding. We've been here nearly 3 years and have planted about 8 acres of woodland, we're in the process of converting a 1 acre field to veg beds and orchard, and have 5 chooks. The main aim is to increase self-sufficiency in food and firewood.

We spend as much of our free time as possible on the land (everyone is working or studying full time) and an extensive list of things to do is a permanent fixture on the fridge... We enjoy every minute.

Eventually I'll be moving out once I've saved enough money up; my intention is to find some flatter land on which to establish a market garden or similar (got plenty of time to make up my mind as money is somewhat scarce!).

Anyway, nice to meet you all Very Happy

Thanks for the kind welcome everyone! Nice to see that there are quite a few relatively local DSers Smile It's also good to see that I'm not the only one that suffers from flat land envy!

We don't have flat land, but at least ours is manageable. Welcome.
