Whitmuir Organics

Whitmuir Organics is a small, organic farm in the Borders. Farmed by Peter Ritchie and Heather Anderson, the 140 acres of grade 4 and 5 agricultural land is on a north-facing slope, 900 feet above sea level.  They keep pigs, laying hens, turkeys, sheep and beef cattle and despite the very short growing season, produce a range of soft fruit and vegetables on 2 acres of land and 2 poly tunnels.


Earthshare CSA

Earthshare is a small local farm that grows and supplies seasonal vegetables and soft fruit in the form of a year round weekly box.  They use organic methods and only include produce from their own farm.  Subscribers can become more involved in the growing of their food, and they are offered a discount if they come to the field to help with seasonal tasks such as weeding and soft fruit picking. Subscribers usually make a commitment to EarthShare for a year at a time; during that year they receive an equal share of everything that is harvested. It is all about becoming more connected with your food and sharing the ups and downs of farming life.
