Scottish couple from camvoice
Amber and Greg delighted fans when they beat the odds to be crowned Love Island winners for 2019 - despite only being coupled up for 12 days.And it seems for this smitten couple, the course of true love is set to run smooth.“We have learned, however, that although the public want to buy local produce, they don’t want to travel far to purchase it so the only solution was to bring the produce to them.I got the idea of the horse box from Pinterest but I did have to warm James to the idea.” Renovation work on the horse box began in February, with the inside completely ripped out and the outside resprayed with black paint.
The Beef Box now concentrates entirely on 100% pure Highland beef and free-to-roam eggs from a variety of hen breeds on the farm including Bantam, Light Sussex and rescue hens from the British Hen Welfare Trust.
A farming couple from near Inverness have transformed an old horse box into a mobile farm shop to sell home-reared beef from their Highland cattle fold.
James Foster and his wife Steph farm 200 acres at Cragganvallie, Kiltarlity, which is home to 23 pedigree Highland cattle, a small commercial suckler herd and 50 breeding ewes.
In regards to future plans, Steph said she wants to do more to educate the public about farming and how food reaches their plate.
She said: “Once we have had a few outings with the Beef Box, I’m hoping to install a coffee machine so that rather than customers just coming to pick up their produce and leaving again, they can have a coffee and a chat about what they’re buying and how it has got there.” If the Highland beef retailing venture takes off, James and Steph say they may sell the commercial cows and try to supply local restaurants and businesses.
“It’s important not to rush and ruin a product so we don’t just kill to meet the demand,” said Steph.
