We have a new permanent resident here on the Croft. Meet Dellie. She is a cross breed and has come from a Farm, where she has been non-stop escaping. She is a dear wee piggie. We have put her next to Flora, as she was lonely and just wanted a pal. The plan will be that if they both get on ok then we will open up Flora's enclosure for both of them. She is now in 2 lots of stock fencing along with electric fencing πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ. Time will tell to see if it keeps her in. Oh yes and she is hopefully 'in pig'... πŸ–πŸ–

Christmas Turkeys

TURKEYS

Just to let you all know that we are NOT taking any more orders for Turkeys this year. If you were thinking of messaging us now, I am only taking names to go on the waiting list. Sorry about this...... πŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒπŸ¦ƒ

Tupping Time 😱

Well it's that time again, however we are doing this a wee bit earlier this year.
A nearby Farm, Dell Farm, has very kindly lent us one of their Tups (male sheep), as ours is our 8 girls (Gimmers - first timmers), daddy, so unfortunately we can't use him on them. This bad boy will be with the girls for at least 3 weeks. He is a beauty....
Our other male will be with 5 of our older ladies in 3 weeks time.
Then it will be 🀞🀞 for lambs around February time 2022 😱😱

After 18 months of trying to organise a Poultry Slaughter Course it actually happened today πŸ‘πŸ‘.
18 months of form filling, email sending and phone calls. So thankfull to Charlie Mason, from the Humane Slaughter Association, who came all the way up from England and Attila Morvay, one of the Vets from Food Standards Agency to oversee every hen dispatch, who came over from Aberdeen.
We also had yummy homemade sausage rolls, pizzas and fresh strawberry cake care of Michael and Janet Hobson ..... Now to wait for the pass certificate for Adam Mason πŸ€”πŸ€”

PASTEURISATION

Ive been asked on a number of occasions is the Raw Goats Milk, I use for making Ice-cream pasteurised. I must admit I was unsure about this but after a wee bit of investigation into this question, I found the following details :

Heat the milk to 63Β°C (150Β°F) for at least 30 minutes or 72Β°C (162Β°F) for at least 15 seconds.

And after putting a stick thermometer into the Raw Goats Milk, it certainly did hit the temperature of over 72 degree centigrade for over 15 seconds - so it does show me that our Ice cream is pasteurised.

Well this is exciting..... We would like to introduce to you our new lady sorters who will be breeding for us.
Our 2 wee ones are female weaners, who are both sisters and are 8 weeks old. We have given them the lovely names - Heather and Thistle. They will hopefully breed for us in just under one year. They are both from the Iris Bloodline but only 1 will be registered with the British Pig Association.
Our older Sow is called Mary and is from the Alison Bloodline.
Two weeks ago Adam drove down to Cornwall with our trailer. On the way he very kindly picked up a 6 month old OSB Boar in Cheshire and delivered it to Gloucester service station, where he transferred the Boar into a fellow OSB breeders trailer, that had driven over from Kent.
He travelled down to Cornwall and stayed there for 2 weeks. He then drove up to North Wales where he picked up Mary, our new OSB Sow, stayed the night and then drove all the way up to Glenorchy Farm, Bridge of Orchy and picked up our 2 new female weaners for us. He then drove back home.
That was an epic journey for Adam of 1602 miles but he did it. ❀️. So we now have 3 Sows and 2 Weaners who will both breed for us..... πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
This is what happens when you breed Rare Breed Pigs - Oxford Sandy and black Pigs....

It's lovely to watch the mummy Hens show the wee ones what they should be doing.... So far we have 4 mummies with 7 chicks....

Another lovely message from todays family visitors:

Thank you so much for taking the time to show us around your croft today.
It's clear the love and passion you have for it.
Kids and adults both enjoyed meeting the animals and learning all about them.
Will definitely be back again soon to meet the new piglets 🐷
Thanks again.

Just wondering if you will be at Glenurquhart Highland Games this weekend?
Lamb and mint burgers πŸ‘Œ
Just got round to having the sausages we bought at the market in Fort Augustus and they were absolutely delicious. Will be getting more at the next market for sure.

First one sorted
Thankyou Jane for the pork. We ate it while we had guests and they commented on how moist and tasty it was. Pork was the roast of choice for one of our guests and she loved it! Thanks and we will order more!
Thank you for a lovely visit today.
What a great picture cousin!
Just to say last week we had the spare ribs which were gorgeous, the bacon was very tasty and tonight we had the rolled shoulder of pork roasted which was delicious but not only that but also the skin was on for crackling - soooo good. Will be back for more soon. πŸ˜€
