Scotland Case Studies

Ross Mitchell, Castleton Farm, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Ross Mitchell runs Castleton Farm near Laurencekirk in Aberdeenshire, with his parents and wife Anna. Castleton Farm is a 710 acre family run business devoted to fruit production growing strawberries, raspberries, cherries and blueberries, supplying leading supermarket chains such as Tesco and Marks & Spencer. There is also a thriving Farm Shop and Café selling home grown fruit and locally sourced produce. Ross tells us about why he got involved with Open Farm Sunday for the first time last year and shares some of his personal top tips for a successful event…

Carolyne and Somerset Charrington, Treshnish Farm, Isle of Mull

The Charrington family have been farming at Treshnish since 1994, and in this time they have seen the bio-diversity and wildlife improve dramatically. The farm has a flock of about 650 sheep made up of Blackface hill ewes, in-bye Cheviot and Zwartble cross ewes. Cows from another farm graze here in the summer so we can continue to manage the habitats properly.
