Jim Fairlie @ Logiealmond
Not open to the public.
One of Scotland’s finest lamb and beef farmers, Jim Fairlie made a big leap from growing up in the city to becoming a shepherd at the age of 18. He took over Kindrum Park Farm in 2007, and his lamb, mutton and native breed beef have graced the tables of some of the country’s finest restaurants. Now, as well as selling through the local wholesale market, he prefers the more personal touch that comes with selling through Perth Farmers’ Market, which he founded in 1999, and at events from T in the Park to Perth’s annual Kilt Run. You’ll only find his mutton at Perth farmers’ market: two-year-old hill-reared wether mutton, rather than the more usual five-year-old ewe, it has a milder, less fatty taste, and has become as popular as his prime lamb.
