Balhelvie Farm is 5 miles east of Newburgh on the Southern Bank of the Tay Estuary.
Farmed by the Wilson Family since the mid 1960’s, Balhelvie is 400 acres in size and is a mixed family-run unit.
80 Suckler Cows and their offspring graze the pastures on the farm along with a flock of 200 ewes.
Half of the cows calve in the autumn from September through to November, with the remainder calving in the Spring from March through to May. Three Aberdeen Angus bulls ensure quality calves.
A variety of crops: Wheat, Barley, Oil Seed Rape and Fodder Beet are grown on the farm both as feed for the livestock and for selling. Some of the grass is also harvested as both silage and hay for winter fodder.
Having enjoyed the taste of our home produced beef ourselves for many years, we started selling beef direct to the public in 2001, firstly to friends and neighbours, but as word has spread of our quality product so our customer base has increased.
We now sell beef and lamb from the farm, and at Farmers’ Markets in St. Andrews and Cupar.
