A summary of our week sharing highlights from our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
This week we celebrated our UK farming heroes who have inspired us via their social media channels. They share examples of key environmental, social and economic deliverables of farming while telling their story
Social Media Farming Hero 1 Mossgiel Family Farm
Farmer Bryces positivity, ingenuity, humour and passion for nature comes across in every tweet. We love his moo-rvellous updates and we only wished we lived closer so we could buy Mossgiel milk
Social Media Farming Hero 2 Louises Farm Kitchen
Louise runs a business delivering quality diversified artisan meats from small scale producers direct to the public. Her business model is a real inspiration for us and her pictures of food always make us hungry
Social Media Farming Hero 3 Kintaline Farm
We love posts from their ‘living larder’ and take great inspiration from their drive for sustainable living by working with and harvesting nature
Social Media Farming Hero 4Tap o Noth
The lovely James and Rosa educate us on selling produce via a community supported agriculture model. Their market garden is a productive natural beauty to behold
Social Media Farming Hero 5 Joyce Campbell
We find Joyce an inspiring storyteller of farming. She is so positive and her love for her work, her community and her environment comes across so clearly.
Social Media Farming Hero 6 Smiling Tree Farm
Christine is a powerful and positive advocate of regenerative agriculture and holistic management. Her business is an inspiration and her passion for building soil is infectious
Social Media Farming Hero 7 The Horned Beef Company
David and Bekka are passionate about farming with nature. We love pictures of their ‘wildings’ and are inspired by what they do and how they are doing it
As an industry, we don’t celebrate what we do or each other enough. Our approach has always been to build relationships and collaborate rather compete. It’s been a pleasure to highlight the work that these great people do.
And in other croft updates….
We signed up to become members of Pasture for Life, an organisation that promotes regenerative agriculture by feeding animals ONLY grass in a way that delivers benefits for nature
Our sheep eat grass. Just grass. Grass, grass and grass. Ok maybe some tree leaves and herbs but you get the gist. And no, we’re not sampling it. It’s just a selfie with Chief Lamb Nugget
Rush hour on the croft. Hens busying to dustbathe. Highlanders looking for a spot to lie and chew the cud
