"Nice and Simple" in the Scottish Borders

JM Aiken

Willie Aiken and his father John farm at Carlophill Farm near Penicuik.  They have 1000 acres from 900 – 1700ft, ranging from wet heather hills down to peat and clay fields which are better suited to a dry summer.  “We get a lot of rain in this part of the world” 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.
