Farm Tour: working with nature on a croft
Hosted by Phil Knott
Phil Knott is a crofter on the Sleat Peninsula on the Isle of Skye. Phil lives with his partner and children on a 3ha wooded croft. He has come to crofting from a different angle to most, that of being a wildlife and land management expert but with no direct farming experience but with extensive knowledge of flora, fauna, and geology. As a wildlife tour leader, he has been all over the world and studies many different types of farming practices. He moved to Scotland in 2004 and always wanted to manage his own piece of land. Pockets of land are hard to get hold off in the Highlands of Scotland, but crofting does give an opportunity to get your foot on the ladder.
Join Phil on a tour of his farm and see how he is working with nature.
