Welcome to Balnafettach
Fantastic steak – I can’t remember the last time I had beef as good as this.

Balnafettach is a family-run farm situated just outside Cromdale, in the heart of the beautiful Scottish Highlands and located within the fantastic Cairngorms National Park. We farm one of the oldest Scottish native breeds, pure Highland Cattle (the ones with the long hair and big horns!) and a small flock of sheep (a mixture of pure Jacobs and Texel X). We must also mention our clever chickens (lead by Jasmine, a pure Scottish Blackrock hen) and our friendly sheepdog, Chips. Occasionally we also rear rare breed pigs from weaners, which we then turn into bacon ourselves using the old traditional methods.
Recently we have been developing our pure Highland Beef and Scotch Lamb product range together with the assistance of our world-class butcher – see Farm Produce. We can now also offer for sale, in season, wild game (some shot on the farm and all others locally sourced).
Farming for us is not just about producing animals for the meat chain, but also nurturing traditional and rare breeds (see Breed History), while protecting and developing the wonderful natural environment in which Balnafettach is situated (see Balnafettach Farm).
As a further commitment to our animals and customers we are also members of the organisations below. For more information, view the Balnafettach Farm page.
