The catalyst for the expansion of our farming interests was a move by Ian and Hardie Brown in 1955 from Carnock Mill Farm in Fife to Innergask Farm in Perthshire. Their initial 90 acres has grown to around 5,500 acres in Perthshire, Fife and East Lothian.
The main crops grown are barley and wheat to supply the Scottish malting and distilling industries. We also grow potatoes, oil seed rape, vining peas and temporary grass for grazing livestock and cutting for silage or hay. We pride ourselves in our long history of supplying quality produce to the British food and drinks industry.
While we embrace modern farming practices to improve our efficiency, we are acutely aware of the environmental fragility of our land. The use of satellite guidance and yield mapping, along with extensive soil testing, is now allowing us to understand our land better and adjust our inputs accordingly. We continually strive to ensure that our quest to improve the land for future generations is pursued in an environmentally sensitive manner.
Kingie estate in Glengarry, extending to 17,500 acres, is situated amongst a magnificently scenic and remote part of the west coast. The estate is still maintained as a traditional sporting estate and employs local people. Since 1989, sustainable deer management has been our core emphasis and this is achieved through collaboration with an association of neighbouring estates. Management practices embrace new technology whilst striving to conserve the manmade, natural and social environment. Kingie encompasses heather, moorland, trees, grasslands and several Munros . It offers quality accommodation for let, which can be seen by following the link below.
