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.

Signing off for a while...

Day 5 of the new year and we’re in another lockdown. Not where any of us want to be (especially in the depths of winter in Scotland) and certainly the 5 of us are all feeling topsy turvy again. The prospect of virtual school and missing family, friends and ‘normal’ life dreadfully is hitting us all hard. 
⁣
While these little squares have the ability to provide a whole heap of support and a link to the outside world, my relationship with my phone and social media has got a little bit out of whack over the last wee while. These little people need the best version of me to help them through the next few weeks so I’m going ‘cold turkey’ and stepping away for a wee while!
⁣
So, stay safe and good luck. Above all, be kind to yourselves. The light is most definitely at the end of the tunnel, we just need to keep going. Sending love, Lx

Hoping 2021 is kinder to us all but particularly those for whom 2020 has been unbearably hard.

See you on the other side. 
With love, Lucy x

Merry Christmas you lovely lot!

There couldn’t have been a better day for this @modocreative parcel to arrive. I have wanted one of these for so long and finally bit the bullet this year.  Not expecting it to arrive before Christmas as they have been super busy with orders this year, it arrived just in time and was a lovely surprise.

This year, more than ever, it’s so important to believe. Whether it’s in fairies, that The Big Guy is winging his way on his sleigh tonight or simply that everything will work out ok in the end. Just hold on tight and believe. And this is going to be hung in the kitchen as a daily reminder to all my lot to believe in themselves. 

Sending lots of love and strength from our family to yours this Christmas ✨
