Pause at an organic farm where you will meet Hugh and Sascha and see how farming the old-fashioned way has helped them to create one of the most celebrated livestock farms around plus gain an exciting and tasty insight into the local food scene. Head out to lush Perthshire pastures and meet the livestock which includes purebred Aberdeen Angus cows, free-ranging chicken flocks and rare breed Berkshire pigs. You will be able to observe a sheepdog demonstration; watch these lovable and hardworking dogs put their skills (or not!) to the test plus meet with the farm’s butcher where you will learn where the best cuts of meat come from. Your experience ends with a delicious steak-tasting as you sample four award-winning pedigree steaks (or burgers) followed by an organic lunch, served in the farmhouse kitchen.
