What you'll do
When you arrive, we will greet you with a cup of tea or coffee and homemade sourdough bread all made here in the farm kitchen. Then we will get you suited up in gear suitable for being out with the animals. We will provide waterproofs if required and usually have spare welly boots to fit if you'd like to stay as clean as possible. We will then head out to the barn, where we will walk you through how to hand milk our dairy cow, petunia. She is a lovely natured cow who will stand while you give milking a go. Then we will walk out to the field where you can hand feed some of our Soay sheep. Soays are the UK's most primitive breed of sheep and, in our opinion, the cutest sheep on the planet. We will also visit our two milking goats for feeding and scratching. They are currently pregnant and while we aren't milking them, we are spoiling them rotten. We will then head to meet BoyBoy our adorable KuneKune pig, who loves company and a good scratch. After feeding the sheep, we will head to the chicken coops where you can collect eggs. Children under 12 are free and do not need a ticket. Please just message us to let us know kids will be attending.

We are Kat and Kevin, passionate smallholders who moved to our small farm about 5 years ago- adding dairy goats, sheep, a KuneKune pig, chickens, ducks, geese, cats, and a rather dapper peacock named Major Tom to the mix. We grow and make most of our own food and love to share that passion with other people. Kat is an author and photographer who specialises in craft and DIY how-to books, online courses and events. From the farm studio, she hosts popular workshops and weekend long retreats on crochet, sourdough bread making, cheese making, foraging and supper clubs.

Where you'll be
Our type of farm is locally called a croft. It is a traditional type of small, self- sustaining tenant farm that has existed in communities like ours for hundreds of years in Scotland. We offer a glimpse into how these farms exist as part of a larger traditional hunting, farming and forestry estate and also what it takes to live the "good life" that many people dream of.
