Lower Mill of Tynet is a family farm and farm shop on the stunning Moray coastline between Spey Bay and Buckie. It is run by husband and wife team Gordon and June Whiteford and their 3 children. It is a certified organic mixed farm with dairy cows following a calf-at-foot system, an arable enterprise growing a range of crops including wheat and field peas and they produce award-winning brown and white free range and organic free range eggs.
Farmer Gordon is passionate about animal welfare and the environment and spent a year studying best practice across the world through a Nuffield Scholarship.
Inspired by his findings, regenerative methods and organic principles, he is now applying new techniques which are good for the environment, good for the farm and good for you too by producing high quality milk and eggs.
“Our philosophy is simple, we put the environment and our animals welfare first at all times by ensuring the highest standards of hygiene and care. We make sure they have plenty freedom and space to roam and graze”.
We have both traditional brown and also our distinctive white shelled free-range eggs. Why are they white? Simply because our white hens lay white eggs just as wholesome and delicious as our brown eggs. Not only that our white eggs have stronger shells and bigger yolks, making them the perfect choice for cooks and bakers
Like all our hens, our flock are truly free range but in addition to gain organic certification, they are not given antibiotics and they are fed the finest non-GM, organic feed free from pesticides and other agri-chemicals and our micro dairy means the cows can graze lush diverse grass swards in summer and during the winter they can enjoy fodder made on farm.
The farm supplies the local area with eggs and milk and the family have created a modern farm shop, complete with a milk vending machine and flavoured milkshakes! The family welcome visitors to enjoy the fresh air and farm experience and purchase produce produced right on their door step. A variety of homebakes, coffee and local seasonal produce are also available year round – pop along and see for yourself.
