Lochbyre Rare Breed Meat
Not open to the public.
A family smallholding south of Glasgow, Lochbyre put the emphasis on ethical production of their rare breed Gloucestershire Old Spot and British Saddleback pigs. All are born and reared on the smallholding, ensuring complete traceability and minimal stress, and are allowed to mature and develop naturally. They spend all their lives roaming free outdoors in small family groups, only being given medicines where absolutely necessary. The farm also runs one of the few flocks of Shetland and Soay sheep, similarly kept outside all year round. Spring lamb is sold from November until January, with early booking advised - pre-order by phone or email, or buy various sizes of meat boxes online (predominantly pork, with seasonal lamb). They also attend various farmers' markets including Hamilton, Clarkston and Overton, announced on their Facebook page.
