Shetland Kale

Have you heard about Shetland Kale?

It’s a type of cabbage that’s native to Shetland – we’ve grown it for 100’s of years!
It’s a super food for our year old sheep that are in the byre all winter or maybe a ewe or ram that are outside that needs a boost.

It’s also a great addition for our traditional Reestit Mutton soup which is made of older sheep’s meat. The meat is placed in a salt brine for 2-3 weeks, then it’s hung up and dried (preferably over a peat fire to let the smoke flavour it), sliced and boiled with tatties, neeps and carrots. Delicious!
