Hi all, after a career in IT, Mrs. Treacle and myself took early retirement and moved to Aberdeenshire.  We bought an old (c.1840) house in need of TLC and we've been busy renovating it  for years.

Apart from all mannerof DIY, we grow as many of our own veges as possible and make industrial quantities of jams, pickles, chutneys and cordial.
Along with some friends who own a market garden, we raise rare-breed pigs which we fatten for pork.

We've got a motorhome and travel through the UK. Being retired, we can go whenever we want. We also manage one or two foreign breaks a year.
Favourite destination is Germany.

Your place looks fantastic and as a keeper of rarebreed pigs, then you're going to be in good company. Welcome to OTG.
