About Wheems Organic Farm

An organic smallholding in Orkney with yurts, pods, bell tents – and a cosy cottage!

The Owner Says

Wheems Organic Farm is an ecological and organic 6 hectare horticulture and animal smallholding, producing organic food for a local market. Wheems farm buildings are 200 years old and have been renovated using local, traditional and sustainable materials. Wheems farmland has been sensitively landscaped with areas set aside for conservation, areas carved out with stone dyke walling, and areas of tree planting.

Site Facilities

BBQs and small campfires allowed. There are 2 showers and 3 toilets in a wooden building by the bothy. The brand new campers' kitchen has 2 small electric cookers and kettle with lovely wooden surfaces, including tables, chairs and a little lawn with a stone bench. They also have a washing machine, large fridge, freezer and a hairdryer, plus books and games for the kids. Each bothy is provided with bedding (optional), a heater, water container, rechargeable lamp and hot water bottles. The yurt is more lavishly furnished, with a custom made wooden floor, beds, bedding, blankets, towels, candles, lamps, a log fire and firewood for your stay. Islay can provide you with a camping stove for the yurt if you would rather this than using the shared kitchen.
