We are gradually re-fitted several older Brentford 460 houses that we no longer have a need for here.
They are a very good deal, with new floors and new roofing.
Still recovering from Royal Highland Show adventure means the day of showers was spent on paperwork but a lovely evening, and the need for gentle exercise, inspired a bit of new field planning, and the layout of a new fence. Was enthralled by a display from our personal Starling Murmuration Team.
Smallholding Scotland is Launched.
Established by smallholders, Smallholding Scotland is a unique, member-led organisation dedicated to representing, promoting and supporting smallholding across Scotland.
The Societies purpose is to promote and support the sustainable stewardship and the purposeful use of smallholdings.
There is a lot to do over the coming weeks, months and years to build the organisation into a strong body that supports and represents smallholders in Scotland but there is a vision and a will to do that – and with the active support of Scottish smallholders, we can achieve it.
The management committee is determined that the organisation will be member led; that it will be open and transparent in its working. News items will be added to the website regularly and you can sign up for the newsletter via the website.
There are still vacancies on the management committee. If you have time and energy to commit to growing Smallholding Scotland and smallholding in Scotland, please get in touch.
The constant showers had even our wee sparrows fed up – lined up on the chairs just outside the (very dirty) window.
We have literally hundreds of these characterful wee birds and there are juveniles on every fence begging for food. They have had far too much fun with baby veggies .. will need to increase the protection and so some more. !!
First week of June
We have Black Rock pullets and both Brown and Black Rock growers for sale (10 and 7 weeks old)
The Pullets and older growers are ranging outside, with the younger birds following on when they have matured a few more weeks.
The growers can go to new homes, but you have to keep them seperate from adult birds.
As our birds are outside they must be booked before you come to collect. We will not chase them around acres of grazing if you just appear <g>.
Contact us to arrange collection, please bring boxes, and we have feed, bedding and equipment for sale here too.
