Malting Barley Whisky Tour

Every story has a beginning so why not start your Speyside whisky adventures where it all starts, here on the farm.  We grow malting barley which is sold to make The Glenlivet whisky.  The farmer will walk you through the fields, explaining the process of growing the magical crop.  In addition he will show you the machinery and explain how the barley production fits into our farming system.  He can show you the environmental and conservation work we are carrying out on the farm.

We can accommodate small groups and larger parties for this tour.

Prices for group booking for 1-6 people from £30/head

General Farm tour

Farms are fascinating places for all age groups.  We offer a behind the scenes tour into our mixed farm, walking the arable fields, meeting the cows and sheep and seeing a range of machinery.  You will be guided around the farm by the Smith Family themselves, who can answer your questions and give you a real insight into farming life.
