CHICKEN & DUCKS
SHETLAND & HORSE
Animals and nature know best, so we looked at how animals used to move through this landscape, grazing and fertilising as they go. We aim to mimic this using Highland cows, pigs and goats.
Natural rotovators, pigs especially are amazing at rooting and turning over the land, making it better for new growth and seed planting and they are used in combination with other grazers at Harestone moss.
Sustain = Leave the same, and not make worse
Our aim is to… Regenerate – Make it better
We want to look after our small pixel of land in Scotland now, and for years to come. Our philosophy and plans will work with natural processes that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds and captures carbon in the soil – aided by our small team of animals.

the highland cows
Meet the Harestone Highland Cows
Both very different characters, apart from when it comes to food. They love a treat.
Likes a burst of speed then a lie down
Loves nothing more than brush , she literally goes into a trance !
GP & WIZZY
These two are best friends and after being lonely for a long time were brought together here to enjoy their retirement days together.
Love an apple and walk round the croft.
THE GOAT CREW
Our pygmy goat- Goaty McGoatface what she lacks in size she makes up for in her trouble making abilities!
Leads the rest astray and expert fence jumper
Jack and Victor are named after Still Game’s loveable twosome, and the brothers are equally mischievous and funny.
Marshmallow & Flake
These cute baby goats arrived in November 22 from our Pygmy goat, and have brought such fun and joy to the croft.
We have had a wee name change (from Ias and Winston) as the suspected Daddy , well was not !
They were renamed by a little boy who came to visit and I think it suits them
