Kenmure Farm lies along the Tarff River near the village of Kirkcowan in South West Scotland. Stuart McWhirter farms 1,300 acres in partnership with younger brother John and his mother Hazel. The land is a combination of hill, rough grazing and improved grassland. With a range of land types and productivity Stuart focuses heavily on improving the better quality land with highly productive grass species and soil fertility and uses rotational grazing as a means to utilise more grass.
