Our Farm

Since 1963

Kilduff Farm is a family run arable farm of around 1,100 acres. It started as a traditional arable farm when James Millar Snr and his family moved north from Berwickshire to begin farming here in 1963. Jimmy and Isobel spent the next 50 years building and developing the farm and estate into Kilduff as it stands today.

Family run farming

Kilduff Farm is now run by Russell who grew up at Kilduff watching his grandfather manage the land, and over the years developed a strong passion for farming and rural life. Having graduated from studying agriculture at university and worked on the farm during holidays, Russell took the reins from his grandfather in 2010. Since then Russell, together with his wife Lucy, has developed the business to respond to the challenges facing modern day farming while always being mindful of the principals learned from his grandparents before him.

Meet Patch, the newest member of our scarecrow team. He’s been hanging out with us over lockdown and helping tend to The Patch. He’s decided to stick around and is looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks. 🎃

He’s been here so long, he’s starting to look a little familiar!

Three weeks to go! Behind all the exciting pumpkin news and pics filling our grid just now, Covid reality is keeping us all in check! We are working incredibly hard to make sure we are doing everything we can to keep The Patch running this year while making sure we keep everyone safe too. We continue to work with East Lothian Council to ensure Scottish Government guidelines are being met and that we are safe to go ahead. We promise to keep you updated with information as and when we have it.

You may have seen over on Native & Wild’s social media that, together, we have made the decision to scale back our food offering on The Patch this year in a bid to help keep you and your little ones safe.

The Native and Wild food truck will still be with us on The Patch but in a slightly different capacity this year. Sadly, they won’t be serving their Posh Stovies, but instead will be selling kick ass coffees, teas, cakes and other sweet treats with a certain theme 🎃

We take your safety extremely seriously so we want to reduce any queues and make your experience at The Patch as fun and relaxing as possible. 

We, more than anyone, know it’s disappointing. This obviously isn’t what we had planned for 2020 on The Patch but we do believe this is the RIGHT thing to do for everyone. 

And next year, it's going to be MEGA 💥
