Hi I'm New

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

Hi, Iím Alison, Iíve been lurking on the cs forum for quite a while, I went away on holiday and when I came back many of the names I had got used to seeing had disappeared. Not one to give up easily I have now found you all here. I didnít think I could post much before, being a wanabe, but as of next week We will be moving to our own holding.

We are moving to North Devon, England. The farm has 30 acres, with agri tourism, storing caravans, caravan and camping (very limited), and pasture.

At the moment there is farm gate sales of eggs from the 50 chickens and three ducks. Nothing has been done to the pasture for three years.

I canít wait to move now. We are going with my mum and dad. We being my husband and three children 5,3,9m

I feel I know you all really well, and hope a Brit can stay.

Many thanks

Good luck, it sounds like you found a wonderful piece of property. That first week will be tough but hang in there, its just the adjustment blues. Let us know how things are going when you get there.

Alison -

Hello to a fellow wannabe!!! I've been there, and now am in the process of (VERY) impatiently going back - there just ain't no life like one on the old homestead!!

Glad you found us!!
