East Rhidorroch Estate

WWOOFing

 

East Rhidorroch Estate participates in the World Wide Opportunities On Organic Farms (WWOOF) programme.

We have 2 farms. We spend most of the time at on a hill farm near Ullapool on the west coast with 350 ewes and 60 cows. The second is a lowland farm on the Beauly Firth where we winter the stock and make hay, silage and grow oats in the summer. We go where the work is according to the season. Winter - feeding stock. April - May - lambing, June - weeding, tractor and digger work. July - shearing, haymaking. August - gathering cows and sheep, cutting and chopping wood. Looking after the Guests. September - harvest and speening. October-November - gathering sheep and fencing. Anyone who wants to experience self-sufficiency - endless jobs with maintenance, we have our own electricity turbine, water supply, wood to cut for stoves - butchering & food preparation, gardening, conservation work. Also a wonderful place for walking, riding, sailing and fishing.
