At certain points of the year we host and organise workshops and courses in the fields of ecological design, food production and sustainable living. As an official demonstration site for the Permaculture Association and the Permaculture Research Institute, our farm provides a demonstrative and dynamic environment for practical, hands-on learning and reskilling in traditional crafts and smallholding/ homesteading techniques. We look forward to hosting and helping you advance your knowledge and path towards a more sustainable future.

We enjoy working closely with experienced teachers, qualified instructors and skilled enthusiasts to bring practical and engaging courses of a high standard to the north of Scotland. If you are interested in using Tap o’ Noth Farm as a venue or wish to collaborate with us please contact us at to begin a conversation.
