What kind of Experiences & Activites are on offer?

Croft experience (Family experience sessions)

Have you ever wanted to spend time on a traditional working croft? During certain times of the year we will open our gates and allow families or individuals to come along and have a personal experience, spending time with our lovely livestock including our wonderful endangered Large Black sows, Rowie, Rose & Lily.  You will also get to meet the horses Bracken & Frodo, our sheep and our wonderful array of chickens.  We try to offer these sessions when we have new piglets, lambs and chicks so that you can have a wonderful hands on experience and lots of cute cuddles.

By us offering these sessions you not only have a wonderful time but for every ticket purchased you are supporting a young person to attend as part of our rural skills education package. 

Please keep an eye on our online calendar and social media for the upcoming dates.
