In 2021, with the ongoing problems in the food supply chain due to Brexit and the pandemic so out of our own control we have taken matters into our own hands to shorten the journey from field to fork.

Augill Castle sits at the centre of a small estate and in spring 2021 we began a transformation of under utilised fields to a small working farming enterprise. Our two Aberdeen Angus’ have left us and in their place we now have a flock of two generations of sheep. Lambing this spring went almost without a hitch, although it astounds everyone how determined lambs are to escape. A visit to Augill also means you may encounter a couple of pigs and a dazzling variety of rare breed chickens.

We are aiming to raise livestock to breed and to supply the castle and reduce the journey from field to fork to literally a field! It’s early days and none of our animals are ready. There may be some Augill sausages and bacon on your plate for breakfast by June – although eggs from our resident hens are already a staple of the breakfast menu.

It’s an exciting time and a new venture which has captured the imagination and passion of the next generation of our family here at Augill.
