Hello from North West Highlands
« on: June 03, 2024, 07:35:23 am »
Hi,

Own a 70 acre Croft in the North West Highlands…only recently purchased.

Looking to start a small dairy and be self sufficient in food.

Sounds great!

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Hi Libertinedreamer
Please consider Shetland cattle for your dairy. I think they would tick all the boxes.

I’ve just bought two from Maggy!
