Willie Aiken and his father John farm at Carlophill Farm near Penicuik.¬† They have 1000 acres from 900 ‚Äď 1700ft, ranging from wet heather hills down to peat and clay fields which are better suited to a dry summer.¬† ‚ÄúWe get a lot of rain in this part of the world‚ÄĚ states Willie.¬† They farm 930 Lleyn and Lleyn cross ewes which are all put to the Lleyn ram for early April lambing as part of this commercial system. ¬†Alongside the sheep they farm 190 Saler cows. ¬†Willie states that he wants a life. Therefore the livestock have to work around him so that he can have a life at the weekends. Click [Here] to read more.
