Nestled away on the rural Galloway hills you will find my smallholding.  It’s here that I live and work, run my holding, tend to my livestock, grow fruit and vegetables and run my rural businesses.  A small farm with very big ambitions!

My love of the good life ran away with me some years ago, and I now keep a menagerie of four and two legged friends which include; Dexter cattle, ryeland and mule sheep, pygmy goats, kune kune pigs, horses, ponies and donkeys, pekin bantams, dogs and cats. My livestock live happy, content and quiet lives roaming the Galloway hills grazing on lush pasture.

I live for the outdoors and love being surrounded by nature, like my livestock I am just as free range!  I’ve lived an unconventional life for many years and had many ups and downs along the way, follow my ramblings here, don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for regular updates.

    Rambellings From The Farm


    Great investment of time and money!

    I found this course through following Erica on her The Woman That Farms Facebook page. I've been contemplating various options that I can pursue once I retire/relocate and this course has given me the confidence I need to take my first steps. Thank you Erica! x

    Having recently seen some unusual candles purchased a selection of 4 as a surprise gift. They arrived in next to no time and are now firm favourites, especially given the reusable jars they come. Will order again, great service!

    I received my order of the candle and lavender bags. They are amazing and even my Husband loved them. We are gonna light the candle on Thanksgiving and count all the things we are grateful for - included will of course be our dogs


    Erica, I received your order yesterday and oh my goodness, I could smell that beautiful lavender as I opened up my mail box. It was heavenly. I was shocked at how quickly I got your order being that I am in the US, so I was really pleasantly surprised. Your candles are so cute but I’m saving them for closer to the holidays because they smell like my childhood Christmases. I can’t wait. Thank you for all of your hours and hours of hard work, dedication and love that you put into doing what you do!!

    I just did a random search on tea courses, I was so happy to come across this online course. It was perfect, since it covers all the aspects which could help to set up a business or can also be used to explore as a hobby. It is simple yet so knowledgeable. The course is an educational tea story. Every element of herbal tea making is covered.

    These candles make me so happy. Beautifully simple design and presentation of a natural candle. Smell is stunning and fills the house for all the time it is on and more. Make the darker mornings and nights less dark.
