SOPA Members George, Gordon and Bruce McConachie farm in the Cairngorms.  They have Highland Cattle in an upland all grass system and find that their organic system and wildlife-friendly farming add to the branding of their meat sales. 

The McConachies are part of Moredun Institute's Livestock Keepers Project - a talking science project highlighting the role of livestock in supporting a diverse range of rural industries across Scotland.
