We were delighted to feature in this weeks edition of Scotland’s Larder from The Scotsman We spent a lovely morning with journalist Cat Thomson, showing her around the farm and telling her our story. During lockdown Cat decided that she would like to showcase more small, local, family businesses selling unrivalled Scottish produce. Every week she profiles different businesses in the Scotland’s Larder section of The Scotsman and we were lucky to be chosen.
Behind the scenes
Showing people what we do behind the scenes is one of our favourite things to do. It’s one of the main reasons we are hoping to start farm tours. We have had wonderful support from Go Rural and we are currently working on a product to offer to customers. Please check out their website, there are a huge array of Scottish agritourism businesses showcased, from pods, cafes, farm shops, farm tours to childrens farm experiences.
We hope the link between the farm and shop is conveyed through signage and our customer service in the shop. However, walking among our Pasture for Life assured cattle, seeing the lambs jumping around and seeing where the veg is planted definitely gives visitors a different perspective. When researching Scotland’s Larder Cat asked to come and see our farm for herself and get a feel for what we do, of course we were more than delighted to oblige.
Next week in Scotland’s Larder
Next week she is visiting one of our favourite producers Summer Harvest, who supply us with there delicious cold pressed rapeseed oil along with marinates and dressings. Mark and Maggie are true local food hero’s and provide an excellent, healthier alternative to vegetable oil and it’s produced in Scotland.
