Making beer is our primary business - Black Isle Brewery - see our website for more details.

We have a Bar with rooms in Inverness - Black Isle Bar - see our website for more details.

The garden
We have three full time gardeners and have an extensive kitchen garden, two Keder greenhouses, and an ornamental garden.

We grow vegetables bio-dynamically for us, our volunteers and for the Bar.

We also design gardens for other people. These gardens are designed with invertebrates in mind and planted as much as possible with plants sourced from organic nurseries or that we have grown ourselves.

The farm
The farm is 120 acres and we converted it into organic production when we bought it in 2007. We have Hebridean sheep, a few cattle and some hens. We plants 6,500 trees in the Spring of 2017 mostly organically grown, native and chosen to support wildlife.

Volunteers live in a traditional stone built bothy with double glazing, We are upgrading the bothy this autumn 2017, and installing an aga.
There is a wood burning stove and it will be the coolest, funkiest, volunteer accommodation ever!

For the hardier more independent amongst you there are two caravans.

Lunch is in the main house and is cooked for you. It is a proper meal with a main course and pudding. We provide you with top notch ingredients and you cook for yourselves. There is of course a lot of organic beer for you to drink.
