We're delighted to be working with David Jamieson, Estate Head Chef at Archerfield and Scotland’s Regional Food Tourism Ambassador for Scotland Food and Drink who has been developing new menus for the Estate. He is working hard to show the local provenance and low food mileage on their menus and has produced some scrumptious dished using our home reared meats.

They're perfect for you to try at home and as ever, we've all the ingredients in our Farm Shop. Do let us know how you get on if you make the dishes!
