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 90 year old father lives next door. Our three grown up children live away and visit regularly. 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 in November each year. We also have bees and hens. We have a large vegetable garden with many raised beds, fruit bushes and trees and a large polytunnel.

We would love some help with cutting peats for winter fuel, making hay, weeding, harvesting and general help in the vegetable garden and occasional help to gather/shear/ dose the sheep. There may also be an opportunity to do some beekeeping if interested.

Accomodation - we have two spare double bedrooms. We eat a varied diet of meat and vegetarian food and any help with cooking and in the kitchen is very welcome!
We love playing traditional music with friends.
