Club Open Days

Sunday 2nd August

Carbeth Home Farm, Balfron, Glasgow, Lanarkshire G63 0LF

Daye Tucker, Carbeth Home Farm is the core remaining of the ancient Carbeth Estate and presently consists of 300 acres of grassland and 100 acres of mixed woodland. The non L.F.A. mainly grade 3.2 clay loam land, sits in the Endrick valley in wet West Stirlingshire . In 2005, the first 15 Lleyns were purchased from David Alexander (Flock 913), 5 from Arfon Hughes (Flock 287) and subsequent small additions from Michael Cursiter (Flock 971) and Pamela Ritchie (Flock 1092). Carbeth now carries 283 breeding ewes. Experimenting to improve carcass quality, we introduced a Charollais ram followed by a New Zealand Suffolk, and latterly back to a Myomax Gold top EBV Lleyn. Fat lambs are sold direct to Scotbeef. Apart from sheep income streams (in the absence of SFP) income comes from grass lets, forestry and farm woodlands, agri environment, fishing , shooting and equine livery. We look forward to welcoming you to Carbeth.
