Welcome to Tartan Dragon

For the last 16 years we have been smallholding in North Shropshire. We rear pedigree highland cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens and also have horses.

We sell young livestock for breeding as well as jointed beef, pork and lamb direct from the farm gate.

We love to share our passion and our hard-earned knowledge with others, and now run a wide range of smallholding courses for complete beginners or those with a little knowledge. More information can be found on our courses page or by giving us a call.

We also provide a range of additional services that prospective and established smallholders may find useful, so do please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

“Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic.”
