A small farm with big ideas in the Endrick Valley
Carbeth Home Farm is nestled in the Endrick Valley, between the Stirlingshire villages of Killearn and Balfron. Our mission is to sustainably diversify our business, increase biodiversity and carbon sequestration, and to promote educational and wellbeing opportunities.
These three models of land management can all yield huge benefits in terms of biodiversity and carbon sequestration. What are the differences between them, and how will we use each at Carbeth?
We want our community to be involved in the process. We want you to bring your passion and your knowledge, as many are already doing, and we want to know what we can give back to you.
For the locals, I am sure you know the route I am going to describe, but perhaps after reading my previous blog of twenty things to look out for, you will find more even more of interest. For visitors, this relatively short and relatively easy walk is a good introduction to the area.
Look out for these little signs of winter life and the coming spring on your walks around Killearn and Carbeth Estate.
This project is driven by three people, none of whom were born in to a life of farming, but who share an optimism, creativity and entrepreneurial vision for the future of the farm.
