Seeing as there is a central scotland smallholders  group, does anyone know if there is one in the North?  I would be interested to find other like minded folk around here :)

Not heard of one. There might be something via the Scottish Crofting Federation?

Set one up if you can't find one.

I don't know of one but there is a NE Scotland Rare Breeds group being set up
Our holding has Anglo Nubian and British Toggenburg goats, Gotland sheep, Franconian Geese, Blue Swedish ducks, a whole load of mongrel hens and two semi-feral children.

Hopefully the new RBST group that is about to be set up covering now the whole of Northern Scotland will be a starting point.

The meeting for the new RBST support group for North Scotland is being held on Doonies Farm, Nigg on sat 24th Nov at 2.00pm. I think all the details are on the announcements page. I am hoping to go but OH is away so I am on fowl locking up duties and would not be able to stay too long, so will wait and see. But it would be a great opportunity to meet others in 'The North'

Thanks everyone for their input. I'm not really a committee kind of gal, so wouldn't want to start a group but if someone else does I'll come along!  I know that is a pathetic response but its truthful!! :)
