Highland cattle have been on the farm since 2005 and after “falling in love” with the breed, the couple established the Cragganvallie fold in 2015 with females purchased from the west coast including heifers from the Ardbhan fold on North Uist.
And who has fallen at the first hurdle in the outside world?
Here is everything you need to know about the couples we all got to know this summer...
Having completed the renovations at the end of July, the first outing with the Beef Box was the Black Isle Show, which saw two successful days of selling to new and old customers.
Steph said: “Local farmers’ markets will be our main target for selling beef and we hope to attend more agricultural shows next year as well as the Moy Game Fair.
A farming couple from near Inverness have transformed an old horse box into a mobile farm shop to sell home-reared beef from their Highland cattle fold.
James Foster and his wife Steph farm 200 acres at Cragganvallie, Kiltarlity, which is home to 23 pedigree Highland cattle, a small commercial suckler herd and 50 breeding ewes.
“We have learned, however, that although the public want to buy local produce, they don’t want to travel far to purchase it so the only solution was to bring the produce to them.
I got the idea of the horse box from Pinterest but I did have to warm James to the idea.” Renovation work on the horse box began in February, with the inside completely ripped out and the outside resprayed with black paint.
In regards to future plans, Steph said she wants to do more to educate the public about farming and how food reaches their plate.
She said: “Once we have had a few outings with the Beef Box, I’m hoping to install a coffee machine so that rather than customers just coming to pick up their produce and leaving again, they can have a coffee and a chat about what they’re buying and how it has got there.” If the Highland beef retailing venture takes off, James and Steph say they may sell the commercial cows and try to supply local restaurants and businesses.
