The Old-Fashioned Scotch Collie

for farm, family & fun



Rosewyn Farm is our 18-acre home in Kentucky with plenty of pasture, trees, and sunshine. We raise a rustic flock of utility birds, and predators are a constant threat.  Our Scotch Collies do an excellent job of sky watching for us, allowing chicks to grow and thrive.  And they have a phenomenal off button, too.
