Schoolhouse Farm & Netherstove

Schoolhouse Farm in Deerness, Orkney is a 60 acre unit, and home to our herd of water buffalo, flock of Jacob sheep and Mangalitsa pigs.  We have run our family farm in Deerness since summer 2013. In 2016 we added a further 60 acres of land in Deerness to our holding at Netherstove. Netherstove is about as far east as you can go in Orkney, looking down over the sea and the uninhabited isle of Copinsay.


We produce Orkney Buffalo meat, which is available from shops and on menus around Orkney and beyond.


Lots of exciting developments on the drawing board, so keep up to date with details on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
