This is a smallholding with highland cows, shetland sheep, poultry, a vegetable garden, some new woodland, a small orchard, a sawmill and we are renovating old farm buildings to set up some self-catering accommodation. We are also developing some workshop spaces for woodwork and crafts. There is loads of work to do in any of the above areas, mainly outside and we would welcome people who have farming, gardening, carpentry and building skills. We produce lamb and beef and eat our own food as far as we can. We can provide vegetarian food if preferred and we appreciate helpers doing some cooking. Accommodation is provided in the farmhouse. There are two dogs also living in the house. We are two miles from the village of Saline which has one shop, eight miles from Dunfermline and there are public transport services to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

This mixed hill farm is home to 16 cows, a bull, two goats, a large flock of sheep ,bees, poultry, ducks, five cats and two dogs with their two owners and quite a lot of wildlife. The farm is certified organic/biodynamic. We use Biodynamic methods, have no machinery and work hard to try to grow vegetables, shiitake and fruit at 650' on a south facing hill in a glorious area of South West Scotland. We welcome non-smoking meat eating or vegetarian help. We are far from shops and transport, quiet - a great place to watch the stars!

There is always a lot to do and we need help now! We hope to plant some more fruit trees and generally tidy up after a very wet winter. We have some recycled timber which we would love to turn into duck and/or hen houses and there is always fencing to renovate or dykes to repair!

News update - Coming up to Christmas we have a mixture of indoor and outdoor tasks depending on your skills. Indoors there will be woodworking, painting a floor and windows, moving furniture about; outdoors there's preparing the veg beds for next season, cutting hedges, collecting leaves. We also had a huge fruit harvest so now we're making lots of things from apples - preserves, juice, cider, and crisps!

Here's the bigger picture - we have a long term project renovating and extending a lovely 400 year old house and garden about half an hour north of Edinburgh. We like to work with the character and detail of the original building, using traditional materials and techniques where possible, so - for example - we have done repairs to lath and plaster in lime, and made our own shutters and panelling to match the originals. Outdoors we’re trying to grow our own fruit and veg, and make a beautiful garden in time! We would love some help with small building and finishing works, and tr... more inside
