Busi­ness is boom­ing

Country Smallholding - - Feature Donald’s Croft -

Over the past year or two, I have been try­ing to make more use of the an­i­mals that I have. One thing I tried was send­ing skins off to a tan­nery and sell­ing lamb­skin rugs. I had pre­vi­ously had two small batches made, but sent away over 30 skins ear­lier this year. I ex­pected to sell these skins over the next six months or so, but de­mand was crazy and I sold nearly all of them in three days — a very pleas­ant sur­prise and some­thing I’ll be do­ing again. I was hop­ing to have some to sell to tourists this sum­mer, but that will have to wait un­til next year. They went all over the UK and I even sent some to Aus­tralia.
