Gethin Farm when we bought the property in 1986.
It took two years to renovate Gethin working all hours while still doing contract work ' Just as the work was nearing completion my back gave in, I had 3 slipped discs and that put paid to my working as a stone mason builder, to cut a long story short we sold the farm and bought the house we now live in

Back to 1989 when we had the farm and Rare breed pigs these were Oxford and Sandy at one time there was only 17 breeding pairs,
|Our first O andS Sow dolly she loved having a good scrub and was a more like a pet dog ,|
|Dollies first piglet peggy,she had her first litter of 14 in mid winter . all the rest were sold as in guilt the boars went for meat,|
|this was 2/3 of dollies first litter the light coloured one in the centre is Peggy.|
as you can see we never castrated our boars they were kept for 18 weeks before being culled.
|This is Miss Mole she went half blind and totally deaf as is a trait in border collies, she died of old age at 18,|
|Willow our lovely siamese she also went blind at the age of eleven,|
|Willow and mole were inseparable they were brought up together mole was 2 years old when willow came to live with us as a kitten,|
