Allan and Sharyn decided that the Clyde Valley’s microclimate was highly suited to blueberries in particular. Their policy has always been to impact as little as possible on the ecosystem and to co-habit with the wildlife. The farm’s geographic isolation means that they produce in a healthy, dynamic and biodiverse environment, where the menagerie of birds and insects can work in their favour by keeping populations in balance. They have used as many sustainable techniques of production as possible and have a tolerant approach to insect dynamics. They have tried to maintain the integrity of the area whilst producing food commercially.
