Best wishes with it all, Deanna, and welcome to the forum! Our only regret in LSB farming is that we didn't buy more land in the first place. Hope you're happy on your place!

Hopefully Dunsandel, we are from Lyttelton. Yes, thankfully we have had no battles just along wait. Very distressing and financially challenging. Thankfully almost over. Thank you for your welcome.

Thankyou, and I bet I'll have plenty of questions. Lovely to be able to come somewhere and get help from like minded people.

Good luck, we have been on ten acres since feb, there is always something to do, it has been a steep learning curve but there is always someone to ask advice from, listen to everything and pick out what's relevant to you. We love it :)
