A truly unique opportunity to join local crofter Chris Dyer (featured in Kate Davies blogs) on an exclusive walk through the agricultural year in Shetland, looking at the sheep – ewes, rams and lambs. White/coloured/fleckit and even katmogget! Sift through fleeces from Chris’s flock and see the principal day to day tools and equipment that are used by a Shetland crofter! Chris’s croft is mixed with pigs, turkeys, hens and vegetables alongside his beautifully coloured sheep, so there is plenty to see.
