Hello, we are farmers George and Isla French

Having grown up on farms nearby and sharing a passion for the outdoors and animals, it was our dream that one day we would start a farm of our own.  We developed the idea of establishing a local herd of Belted Galloway cattle with a business plan that started over ten years ago.

In November 2015, we bought Little Rowater.  We were instantly charmed by its location at the bottom of the Knock Hill near the village of Cornhill – a hill that, as keen runners, we frequently raced up!

Since then, we have worked hard to expand and nurture our farm stock.  Passionate about eating and staying healthy ourselves, we also recognise the importance of educating people about the food they eat and strive to ensure what we provide is lean and healthy.

With three small children in the family too, our life at Little Rowater can be hectic, but with enthusiasm, motivation and constant learning, we take great pride each day in seeing our farm flourish and our dreams become a reality.

“We are really keen to let people see where their food comes from and to understand the work that is involved in producing food and managing a farm.  The future of Scottish agriculture is important to everyone, after all we all need to eat, and we all want to preserve the environment for future generations. Each consumer has an influence on the future of Scottish farming and so it’s important that we, as a farming community, teach children and adults about how food is produced so that informed choices can be made”.
