Mackenzie's Farm

How it all began...

Our family have lived and farmed our small croft for hundreds of years!  We continue the practices of our ancestors and, in one form or another, we rear:

  • beef cattle
  • sheep
  • pigs (seasonal)
  • hens

We produce silage, meadow hay, oats/barley, neeps (the Shetland word for turnips) and Shetland kale in our fields.

Our own rhubarb is used to make our delicious jams and our beetroot for our award winning Beetroot Chutney.  We've recently started to sell our own Shetland Sheep's wool (Aister 'oo') and Shetland Kale seed.

Our new website is easy to order from too!  Do have a look at our online shop at

Our community of Cunningsburgh lost its shop a few years ago. Sometime after that, we began to operate an honesty box system on our croft where people stop along and buy our produce. This started with a few dozen eggs in a small box at the road side, but grew to a (very clean) livestock trailer stocked with our own produce, other people’s produce, bread, firewood, milk, and so on. We only operated on a Friday (local newspaper day – which we sold around 90 of per week!)

So, from these humble beginnings, we are delighted to present to you today our Farm Shop (and café run by The Kitchen Table).

Please stop by for a little browse - we've got a large selection of gifts, toys, books, games, souvenirs, crafts, knitting and lots more.

We hope to see you soon.

Kenneth, Hazel and family
