Lynn Cassells and Sandra Baer left their friends, family and jobs in England to travel north to Scotland to find a small piece of land they could call their own.
They had no money, no plan and no experience in farming. They had in mind keeping a few chickens, a kitchen garden and renting out some camping space, but instead, they fell in love with Lynbreck Croft – 150 acres of wild Scottish Highlands filled with opportunity and beauty, shrouded by the Cairngorms mountains.
They talk to Jimmy about their journey and the true story of Lynbreck Croft – a regenerative Scottish croft rooted in local food and community.
Hear what happens when you follow your dreams of living on the land; and how two people became farmers with no experience – and how they learned to make a living from it, their way.
Find out how they learn how to work with Highland cattle, become part of the crofting community and begin to truly understand how they can farm in harmony with nature to produce wonderful food for themselves and the people around them.
