About Us

Lucky Ewe is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) based in North East Fife. We rent land at a smallholding near New Gilston for our small flock of dairy sheep with additional grazing at Cuparmuir and Springfield.

• Lucky Ewe aims to give people with additional support needs of any kind the chance to experience farming, animal husbandry and food production at a pre-entry level.
• We welcome people of all abilities and backgrounds: our placements aim to build skills and experience at Lucky Ewe to help them progress towards employment.
• The outdoors and working with animals have been proven to enhance mental well-being and to bring a sense of peace and purpose: our placements hope to achieve that for beneficiaries and volunteers.

Currently communities in Scotland are experiencing severe economic pressure and deterioration in wellbeing because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Rehabilitation and regeneration are needed now, and in the future, to help communities to recover.

Lucky Ewe offers a path to a new job, volunteering opportunities and beneficial placements for those in need in the community.
We aim to secure permanent premises at NHS Stratheden through community asset transfer. This will allow us to increase the Lucky Ewe flock and in the longer term to produce other food crops – eggs, honey, hard and soft fruits and vegetables – each with its own potential for training and work experience placements.

Lucky Ewe actively seeks grants and is always grateful for donations. These help us to expand the number of people we can involve and support.

We have, at November 2020, been fortunate to secure grants from the Community Response Recovery and Resilience Fund, from the National Lottery Community Fund and from Comic Relief. We have also received generous private donations totalling £900.
