At the Shieling Project we have Shetland cattle and Oxford, Sandy and Black pigs. These are both rare breeds and we are keen for you to get involved in looking after them, from feeding and putting them out to pasture, to milking (in the right season) and making healthy and happy food products.
A visit to the project is a great opportunity to get hands on with crofting and farming of the past as well as looking to the future. We are creating Scotland’s smallest micro-dairy which will be up and running in 2018, and are particularly looking forward to the ice-cream!
We also have our chickens and not forgetting Aspen the shieling dog, who is always a big feature of a visit.
