Lismore Grass Fed Beef and Lamb

Delicious and sustainable Lismore grass fed Highland beef, shearling lamb, eggs & pasture raised chicken from this family business run by Roger & Gilly.

We aim to minimise soil disturbance and keep the soil covered with living plants and roots to prevent the erosion of topsoil and release of carbon into the atmosphere. We allow time for plants to recover between grazing and the resulting stronger plants transfer more carbon into the soil. The animals provide organic matter to feed the soil, contributing to a healthier environment for diverse species of plants and insects to thrive, improving resilience to drought or flood and keeping more carbon where it belongs.

Shepherd’s Cottage Soaps and Luxuries

Shepherd’s Cottage Soaps is an artisan soap and body care business situated on the beautiful Scottish island of Lismore, or in Gaelic, Lios Mòr, the Great Garden. 

All my products are handmade in small batches, using only the best quality natural ingredients with no artificial fragrances, colourants, or preservatives, and all of the packaging is compostable, reusable, or recyclable.

The spirit of our island community and its landscape is in every bar of Shepherd’s Cottage soap, every soft peak of body whip, each label and each curve of twine. Every time you buy a Shepherd’s Cottage product you take a piece of it with you, handmade with love.
