We have just one farmstay room and we love to share our farm with our guests. We are happy to show you round the farm and answer your questions. You are welcome to participate in any farm activities that are happening and if you have particular interests we will try to accommodate them.
We can offer camping spots on the farm for self catered camping in either tent or camper van or there is a family room available in our rustic barn. A toilet is available in the barn but there are no other facilities. Please contact us for prices and options
We can offer farm tours, cheesemaking classes, and tours of the local area including our great local wineries. These are available to guests at the Farmstay or as options for any visitors.
We can also cater small functions in your home in the local area. Menus are designed to your own needs incorporating local and seasonal food as much as possible.
Volunteers / WWOOF
We also take volunteers who are keen to learn about organic food production, holistic animal care and permaculture. We expect you to engage in the full experience of farm life, which will often be long days of work but plenty of enjoyment to go with it. Please contact us for further information if you are interested.
The farm name AislingQuoy means a field of dreams. More accurately it is a composite of Gaelic “Aisling” (a vision or dream) and Orcadian “Quoy” (an enclosed area where animals are kept, yard or field).
We are a small farm (5 hectares / 12acres) and our primary aim is self-sufficiency. We aim to produce as much as possible of our own food. What needs to be bought we prefer to be local and we try to consume as few artificial chemicals as possible.
As a young farm - only 10 years old we are still in the set-up phase of establishing trees and systems. We follow permaculture principles in our farm practices and design and have many ongoing and future projects.
Y Fenni greeting us in the morning for milking with her head through the gate.
We milk the goats in the morning then they spend the day grazing as a herd with their kids. The goats are very well socialised and love to have attention and company. We use the milk for making our own cheese, icecream, baking and drinking.
