Evie is home to two large dairy farms called Dale and Georth as well as Burgar farm. There are also a few beef farms. This is due to the very good quality of soil contained in this area of Orkney. All three dairy farms contribute milk to the award winning Orkney cheese as well as Orkney ice cream and other dairy products.
Burgar Hill Wind Farm
The five wind turbines on Burgar Hill in Evie are visible from a large part of the West Mainland. Established in 1983, this was one of the first wind farms in the UK.
