About Blackpark Farm
Blackpark, apart from the self catering farm holiday cottage, is a mixed farm extending to 300 acres, with 80 suckler cows producing Charolais and Limousin cross yearling beef calves under the S.Q.B.L.A. (member 8785) farm assurance standards.

We also have 100 Highland Mule breeding ewes (a cross of Blackface and Blue Face Leicester) producing prime Suffolk cross lambs, naturally reared on grass under the same quality scheme, and auctioned locally.

Livestock all graze freely on hillside pastures overlooking the Moray Firth, just minutes from Culloden Battlefield, scene of the last battle fought on british soil

Crops grown other than grass, are spring barley to supply grain to the the local maltings for the production of whisky.

Blackpark farm is run in partnership by Mrs. June Alexander (Caravan and Farm Shop) and her son Iain (Main Farming Operation).

Blackpark farm entered the Rural Stewardship Scheme in September 2003 which is an environmental scheme aimed at improving the environmental practices in agriculture, and promoting responsible and sustainable farming practices. Further information on this can be found on the environmental practice section.
