OVERVIEW OF THE FARM
Incheoch lies from 400 to 700 feet above sea level, with a rainfall that has risen from a norm of 38” up towards 46” of late. The soil is fairly heavy loam, good in dry summers but not many fields suitable for cattle over winter.
Most of the 1200 acres is down to permanent grass or rough grazing but there is about 500 acres made up of younger leys including some red clover leys for silage and lamb finishing. Spring barley for malting is grown on Incheoch by Ian McLaren and sons Michael and Peter from Cronan, Coupar Angus. The slightly higher altitude at Incheoch fits in with their workload, farming a large area of barley, wheat and vegetables 5 miles away in Strathmore.
