We run various courses throughout the year at TAS HQ in the east of Scotland, including poultry keeping, sheep keeping, and an introduction to smallholding. 2017 bookings now being taken.
We help to organise Scotland's only conference for smallholders. Come and join us near Perth in February for a day of learning, sharing and networking.
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.
