Hi,
I'm a crofter from the NW Highlands of Scotland, I have a small holding with a micro hydro scheme, three colonies of honey bees, some poultry and have just purchased 6 Hebridean ewes in lamb and 3 wethers (they come to the bucket which is great). With not much experience with sheep I'll probably be asking loads of questions soon.
Great and very informative site.
Thanks,
Murdo  :wave:

Welcome from North Cumbria  :wave:
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

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
