Millside Farm

Millside farm, Galston, Ayrshire, South West ScotlandMillside Farm, Galston, owned by David and Jennifer Alexander, is situated within the rolling open Ayrshire countryside written about in the poems of Robert Burns when he lived at Mossgiel just outside the nearby village of Mauchline.

As the bard sets the scene for one of his famous “Mauchline”poems, The Holy Fair, he must have been walking in his fields with an outlook towards the north east…
“…I walked forth to view the corn…
The rising sun o’er Galston Muirs
Wi’ glorious light was glintin’…”

(Robert Burns)

Millside Lleyn Sheep FlockDavid has been involved with breeding pedigree sheep for over 25 years and Jennifer has a special interest in using wool from their own sheep flock to create Jennifer Alexander FeltingHANDMADE FELT.
The speckly character of Blue Texel wool in particular has proved very suitable to help interpret the aged concept of cave paintings for some of Jennifer’s large feltwork hangings

A selection of our sheep are coming to SKIPTON on FRIDAY 29th Sept.
30 SHEARLING EWES, 8 EWE LAMBS & 3 RAM LAMBS.
