Farm Case Study 23: The Free Company, Edinburgh

?‍? 4th generation Farmer Angus Smith runs The Free Company farm and restaurant near Edinburgh. Everything served in the restaurant is grown on the farm. ? They keep free-range Berkshire pigs and some Mangalitsas. They have their own in-house butchery, are 100% plastic free and now deliver UK wide. Due to the pandemic they started a “Pig Club” subscription service providing monthly delivery supplies of pork.

Angus says, “It’s given us a lifeline. It’s super to be a high welfare farmer and to be able to farm in this way”.
