Hi - I just tried to start a new thread, but the page would not work for me. Apologies if this reply is in the wrong spot.

I am starting a mini farm at my home in Norwell and do not not to wait for July to finish my planning. Is there anyone available to answer my questions on sheep and pigs, specifically fencing? I have read books, but would dearly love someone to consider my individual situation.

Thanks!
