Andrew and Lauren Houstoun farm at Glenkilrie, a 2,500 acre hill farm at the bottom of Glenshee on the southern edge of the Cairngorms National Park in Highland Perthshire. Glenkilrie is home to 1,100 breeding ewes, 160 suckler cows, and 55 red deer hinds. Glenkilrie Larder was set up in 2019 after purchasing deer in 2018. Glenkilrie Larder provides a market for their venison, beef, and lamb through direct selling to the public via home deliveries, farmers markets and events, with plans to expand by refurbishing old farm outbuildings to create a farm shop for passing trade.
