Gordon Whiteford  -  Improving bird welfare on free-range systems

BEMB Trust

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.
