Byres Farm is farmed by the Smith family as part of their farming business “J W Smith”, which was established in 1982 by John and Lorna. Since then both the family and the farming business has grown. John and Lorna are now joined in the business by sons Bill and Alan, their wives Helen and Emma and have 3 Grandchildren, Eilidh, Marshall and Louisa, who are always eager to get stuck into farming life!
On the farm we grow malting barley for the Speyside whisky industry and produce beef and lamb for local markets. In 2016 we started welcoming the public onto our farm when Helen set up the original “Fun Farm”. We love showing the public what we do and where their food comes from and this is how we got to where we are now.
