New grazing

Sheep at Ravensby

We’ve been fortunate to be offered the use of 19 acres of grass locally, so today we moved the 15 ewes up there – as well as doing some running fencing repairs.

The sheep are astounded at the amount of grass.

We’re planning to move the tup and wether there next weekend to let the grass at Barry Mill come away.


Rosemary started the Rosedean Ryelands flock in 2007. Also known as The Accidental Smallholder, and as one of the founders of the Scottish Smallholder Festival, Rosemary can usually be found on her smallholding in Barry, Angus, hugging her sheep or cows.
