Default Hello from West Wales UK

Hi, I'm a farmer here in Wales and have collected engines, tractors and old farm equipment for many years. I started with a Witte Saw, have a number of dragsaws, most recently an Ottawa imported from the U.S. and have about 30 other engines. I also have a Case C and John Deere B tractors among others. Have quite a few questions about my American stuff which I will ask over coming weeks.
Philip

Hello and WELCOME. Always glad to hear from folks in other parts of the world. Enjoy learning how farmers make a living around the globe. Were small farmers here in the Midwestern USA.

Hi, We are probably small farmers too with just over 100 acres. The sheep and cattle have been supported heavily with European subsidies but the pigs have to make their own way. What will happen when we leave the E.U. is anyone's guess.

Lets hope your politicans still realize just how important keeping a reliable food source is. Here the Ag dept is only interested mega ag corporations, little outfits like us aren't worthy of their interest. The USDA policies have basically tried to destroy the traditional family farm, those of us still going have to rely on off farm income just to get by.
