Description
We live on a five acre croft (small holding) in a small village on the Isle of Skye.
We are a husband and wife John and Lis. John's 91 year old dad lives next door. Our have three grown up children live away and our oldest, Rosaidh, who is 29 has just moved back home for a while. We are a non smoking household.
We keep a flock of Hebridean sheep which we hand shear to provide knitting wool. We process our own meat. We also have bees and hens, a large vegetable garden with many raised beds, fruit bushes and trees and a large polytunnel.

We would love help with cutting peats, making hay, weeding, harvesting, general help in the garden and occasional help to gather/shear/ dose the sheep and with beekeeping.

Accomodation - either a bedroom in the house or in our new shed where there will be basic accommodation. We eat meat and vegetarian food and any help with cooking and in the kitchen is very welcome!
We love playing traditional music with friends.
