Gordon Whiteford - Improving bird welfare on free-range systems
I am a first generation Farmer having gained the tenancy of a farm on the Fochabers Estate in 2012 (part of the Crown estate) where I now live with my wife, June. I was brought up on a dairy farm in Ayrshire until the age of ten when my father left the industry. I decided to pursue a career in agriculture and went on to study at Auchincruive and Craibstone.
In 2005 I siezed an opportunity to produce organic eggs under contract, and now have expanded to also produce free range eggs as well as packing eggs on farm for a local market place.
