Hello from Aberdeenshire

Hi, I live near the N.Aberdeenshire coast in a small village, surrounded by fields and open countryside. We grow fruit, herbs and vegetables and help to keep traditional breed pigs for pork. We have great access to fresh seafood and game. We cook virtually everything ourselves - no take aways or ready meals . We have a campervan which we use to travel round the UK and usually have a couple of foreign holidays each year too (by air).

Thanks for the welcome. Today was spent helping some friends who run a market garden at the north of the village. We help for free and in return we get a supply of fresh organic veges. I've just fitted a water supply system and feeder for the pigs.
Unfortunately we still have to 'muck out' their sty!

I'll post some pics of the country round here - and the pigs.
