    It's December 1st. How many more of you are 'goody two shoes' like me?

    Paer is best way. We have done ours online for years. We got an inspection this year because the online submission was not shown and the inspector advised that we do it online and still send in the paper form in to avoid this in future. He said it had happened to a few farmers and was due to...

    Best electric fence post

    We started using Rappa yellow posts this year after looking at older threads on here. They are much better than the cheap economy posts we had bought previously which always snapped. To date none of the Rappa posts have snapped with cattle and sheep. We buy direct and get the yorkie.

    COP26 ... Your predictions

    The propaganda machines we are up against are our biggest problem. I heard on Radio 4 last week that 5 oil companies had spent quarter of a billion euros (sounds more than 250 million) on lobying EU policy makers to influence their future green plans. I wonder what our representative bodies...

    Do i need a land agent ?

    It can be if the parties are confident enough to do so. You would need to prove identity by either attending registry in person or doing an ID1 form with a solicitor.

    Do i need a land agent ?
