WE ARE NO LONGER BREEDING OR SELLING BIRDS - please enjoy our information.
We would like to extend our warmest welcome to our home, 10 miles north of Oban in the beautiful county of Argyll on the West Coast of Scotland. Over the past decades we have developed our many interests into our business, sharing our passion and hard won expertise with visitors and customers alike. Alongside this we have cared for and slowly been renovating the farm, and it's centuries old buildings.

|2nd March 2015 - fresh Jacob Hogget available in about a fortnight .. boys went away today. They will hang for the next 10 days or so to maximize flavour and texture. We will have a whole selection of joints, chops, mince and stew. Just so delicious .. more flavour than lamb and more tender than mutton. This will be for sale fresh for a week or so, then frozen from the farm.|
The business has changed over the years, reflecting the changes in our lives.
For many years we were raising and breeding poultry and waterfowl. These were amazing birds, selected for their utility features - egg numbers and quality as well as meat production. Sadly we have had to stop our breeding, and we hope that there will be others who strive to maintain the same sorts of high standards and productivity in birds elsewhere. We have maintained our poultry and waterfowl websites to share some of the great knowledge we learned from wonderful poultry stockmen and women over the years.
We do not have the park open to the public any more, but we do host the Ardchattan Parish Archive so welcome descendants looking for their local history to contact us to arrange an appointment. We love meeting you.
We are still selling the poultry and waterfowl housing, that is available throughout the country; Each model is the very best for practicality and affordability, two of the most important features of any investment.
Our websites are full of experienced advice and guidance for you to make the right choices for you. We have left the breed information up online to support people who are looking for information to learn from.
We have been selling feedstuffs & bedding for more than 15 years now, from the farm, for horses, poultry, cats, dogs, wild birds We order supplies most weeks, you can download the full list of what can be ordered here - big pdf.. Once we know what your regular order is going to be, we are pretty good about having it in stock for you.
We sell our own Jacob lamb and mutton at different times of the year. Please get in touch if you would like to be notified of our next supplies.
Our Jacob sheep are selected not only for great flavoured meat, but also their fleeces. Jill is a keen spinner and we have a growing felting, weaving and spinning community around us. Our girls produce very fine quality fleece for craft work, with a lovely handle, and we get some of the fleece carded and spun for sales too.
We are only 10 miles north of Oban and here are Directions to the farm
