Hello from Cornwall!

Hi all, we live on my parents farm on the south Cornish coast. I'm an acupuncturist by trade and my partner, Jon is a builder (I'm hoping he'll be along soon to sign up). We have a polytunnel which is a godsend, veggies aren't my strong point but this year (fingers crossed) we are doing really well. We have 2 orchards, one of which is incredibly old with twisted gnarled apples trees and I raise chooks n ducks for fun and for the table. Our newest members of the family are 2 baby ferrets (as our hedges are pickled with bunnies - how the hedges are still staning I don't know :roll: ) and are branching out into sheep at the end of the summer.

Look forward to meeting you all :thumbright:

Could someone let me know if it is against forum ettiquette to place a for sale advert upon joining?
