Eastside | A Gathering film

As the sheep business runs quite literally along side the holiday cottages we are always keen to share the comings and goings of the farm with our guests.

Eastside farms 1200 hectares. The sheep are farmed on an ancient system called “hefting” and they literally have the run of the place. At certain times of the year for shearing or marking, where we choose the lambs for stock or sale, we ‘gather’ the sheep bringing them off the hill & down to the farmstead.
