The farm at Wester Kittochside has seasonal agricultural demonstrations with the animals and crops. You might also see the friendly faces of Maggie McDougall, our Stockperson and Ritchie Young, our Farm Manager. Our small experienced team look after all the livestock and manage our land around the farmhouse, steading and beyond. They have a wealth of farming knowledge which they are keen to share, so do say hello if you see them.
Another local to look out for at the farm, is our friendly resident farm cat Sooty.
