We are a small family run croft on the banks of Loch Shin in Sutherland. Shinness is a small traditional crofting community approximately 4 miles outside of Lairg. We set up Highland Croft Produce at a time when things were difficult for crofters and farmers alike with Foot and Mouth and low lamb prices. All our produce is naturally reared to the highest standard and we believe that quality is not to be compromised.
We also have other animals on the Croft including 2 horses.
We would like help with general croft duties and in addition experienced horse riders to help with schooling and exercising the horses.
If you would like to help us, we have a varied list of chores including lambing, haymaking, shearing other chores include looking after other animals on the croft including hens, goats, dogs and ferrets.
As we are a small croft chores tend to be light leaving plenty of time to explore our beautiful scenery. If you would a chance to enjoy some time working on a croft and working with horses, please feel free to contact us.
~~**I am currently looking for an experienced person to come stay with us to help train a young horse if you have experience of training young horses please contact me as I will be training him from February 2014 and we are also looking for an experienced person to help us with lambing duties from early April 2014 for 4 weeks**~~.
