We run various courses throughout the year at TAS headquarters in the east of Scotland, including poultry keeping, sheep keeping, and an introduction to smallholding. 2013 bookings now being taken.
We once read somewhere that poultry is usually the first "livestock" enterprise that budding smallholders are likely to undertake. In this guide we'll take you through everything you need to know about keeping hens.
A wonderful mushroom soup, lifted by the classic combination of garlic and parsley. It can be made with variety of any mushroom, or even a mixture, but is best with a dark-gilled mushroom or chestnut mushrooms.
Scotland's biggest smallholder event, The Scottish Smallholder & Grower Festival, returns on 28th September 2013 at Lanark Agricultural Centre.
Our TAS t-shirts feature a unique design reflecting many aspects of smallholding. They are screen-printed onto high quality, heavy-weight cotton t-shirts.
