More information

Mill of Inverarity in Angus is run by husband and wife team Rob and Alison Stodart, with their two sons Rory and Tom. The Stodarts farm 358 hectares (152 owned, 206 rented) on two separate units and their enterprises include cereals, suckler cows and sheep.

Mill of Inverarity has been in Alison’s family since 1884 (rented from the Fothringham Estate) and Rob also comes from a farming background, although he was originally based in Dumfriesshire. Currently the farm devotes 130 hectares to spring barley, 30 hectares to winter barley, 25 hectares to oilseed rape and 40 hectares to winter wheat.

The family are considering reducing the area of spring barley planted for malting and looking instead at increasing the fertiliser input to increase the nitrogen content and sell as feed instead. They have also experienced a fair bit of grain skinning over the last couple of seasons which has made growing for malt sector a challenge.

The Scottish Monitor Farms programme is being funded by £1.25million secured from the Scottish Government and European Union’s Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund. It is run jointly by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds.
