Farmstrong Scotland is on track to be launched in Autumn 2022, a new wellbeing initiative that has been designed by farmers and crofters for farmers and crofters.
Farmstrong will provide you with the resources and tool you might need to manage your own wellbeing when faced with challenges that are often hard to predict, or control, from fluctuating commodity prices and the weather to changing government legislation and market pressures.

Fearn Farm will donate the average price of a ram and gimmer to Farmstrong Scotland and there will be collection buckets on the day if anyone would like to donate or alternatively follow the link below https://donate.thebiggive.org.uk/campaign/a05690000204FR5AAM

Great From Grass Sponsor 2022 - @Scot Agri

In late 2020 we purchased our first JCB in many years. Firstly because the product really impressed us and secondly because the salesman was on our wavelength and understood our needs as a business. It would be fair to say it hasn’t disappointed and is a vital piece in our small team of machinery which supports both the cropping and livestock side of the operation.

Great From Grass Sponsor 2022 - Virgin Money UK
Without having a close working relationship with our bank manager Alison Wisely from the Virgin Money we would be unable to run the business. There are times over the years when like many businesses we have felt the financial strain, having them there to support us through tough times has been vital. Looking ahead there will no doubt be challenges and opportunities; we are delighted to be working closely with the Virgin Money to help us navigate through stormy waters.

Grab your midweek babysham - I've written a letter! Dear Richard Branson 1️⃣0️⃣ Congratulations on your Virgin Galactic space trip; it looked like one helluva good jaunt – really not jealous at all! I am however pretty disappointed at the apparent hypocrisy of your stance on climate change. 9️⃣ It is pretty well documented that you have given up or at least dramatically reduced your meat consumption as you believe that beef in particular has a harmful impact on the environment. To a certain extent you are right. 8️⃣ The global average of beef production is about 37kg of CO2e per kg of beef produced. Some productions methods will be higher and some lower. For example we are working on our own farm Edinvale Farm to produce (at the very least) carbon neutral beef. We are not there yet. Our last carbon audit (we do them annually) indicated we were about average but on a projection to improve significantly this year. If you are interested we will share the results with you when we do our next audit at the end of the year. 7️⃣ We also work with other farms that have a similar ethos, e.g. the magnificent Fearn Farm where we get the majority of our lamb when in season. Again all grass based and looking hard at their environmental credentials. And you should see the credentials of wild venison. Wow! 6️⃣ We are trying really hard to do better - bit to go but we are heading in the right direction. So it really gnaws when you see that Richard Branson who has shunned meat for the sake of the environment, hops into a Virgin Galactic shuttle and hurls himself towards the moon. 5️⃣ From what I can see, your wee jaunt to the edge of space with 5 pals has emitted just shy of 7.5T of CO2. With the carbon that you have used, I could have produced 200 kg of beef which would feed conservatively 800 folk 1 substantial and healthy meal. However by feeding that 800 people 1 meal, I am also trying to improve the biodiversity on my farm, contribute to my local community, provide healthy and nutritious affordable food. I am looking to get better for the environment and our customers. 4️⃣ Plus your 7.5t of CO2 for your space flight does not include the carbon to build the plane, the runway, the spaceport, the space suits etc. 37kg of CO2 per kg of beef builds the cow! You have gone on a elitist joy ride with your pals because you are in a race to beat the other billionaires who also want to go to space. What is the opportunity cost though? What could you have done with your time, talent, resources and money? 3️⃣ It certainly won’t be as exhilarating but what about helping one of the oldest industries on the planet to get better? Develop and distribute new technologies, promote leaning, support worldwide knowledge exchange programmes, initiate ground breaking research. 2️⃣ Your virtue signalling affects peoples livelihoods, health and mental wellbeing. You build resource hungry companies and jet set around the world, and space. 1️⃣ Put your money where your mouth is and help solve the climate challenge, don't compound it. 🚀 Come back down to Earth 🌍
We've taken a different approach to our pitch maintenance this summer. Normally we would have been cutting the grass every 2 weeks, but this year we allowed it to grow. Two weeks ago it was sprayed for w**d control and this week it was cut and baled for silage. Next step is to scr**e it, seed it, roll it, feed it. 🤞 for rain ! Thanks to Rosskeen Supply Company Fearn Farm and Allan W J Wilson Ltd for all the hard work 🚜
We are delighted to be sponsoring the Top lines and Tales podcast that this week features our customers the Scotts at Fearn Farm. Great listen 👍
