In May 2021, we welcomed four young, pedigree Galloway cows to Carbeth Home Farm. Their breeder, Maggie Gordon, from Barfil Farm, carefully preserves the ancient genetics of the breed, retaining the hardiness and small size that make these animals so well suited to conservation grazing.

Woodland wild flowers
In August we had the huge privilege to be visited by forestry consultant, Rick Worrel, and ecology researcher, Elisa Fuentes-Montemayor. They told us about many of the wonderful plants and wild flowers that are already right under our noses in our ancient woodlands, and discussed how we can help our younger woodlands on their path to greater biodiversity.
We were fortunate to benefit from Carbeth House resident, Samantha Lyth’s writing skills, knowledge and passion for birds, plants and other wildlife. Sam wrote five wonderful blog posts, inviting members of the local community to enjoy Carbeth and its wildlife.
Pupils from McLaren High School visited Carbeth Home Farm in November. Here’s what their teacher had to say:
