Welcome. We are the Millars. We took over West Bastlebog in November 2018 We are a small enterprise of just over 50 acres, producing pig, lamb and apple products and such is the way with scale and farming these days, we farm on a part-time basis. We are registered with the Scottish Organic Producers Association (SOPA) and our land is certified organic.
We are fairly new to farming. Having lived for the past 13 years in Edinburgh our life has somewhat changed since moving to West Bastlebog. Previously a Chartered Surveyor and a jobbing tradesman Andrew has always had a keen interest in farming life, agriculture and self sufficiency. As an eight year old he was milking dairy cows single handedly on a Sunday morning because the farmer had a tendency to enjoy his Saturday nights a little too much. Alexa is a yoga and primary school teacher, have grown up in East Lothian with horses.
Our mission is simple. Work hard and love what we do. And we really do. At the heart of it lies the desire to be natural with the best animal welfare possible and 100% naturally grown produce; no chemicals, drugs only where absolutely essential , outdoor living and foraging, regular rotation,
natural remedies and mothers free to raise their young. All which we believe leads to tasty, nutritional, sustainable
produce while positively contributing to our local
