P. A. Arbuckle and Sons is a long running family farming partnership, and have been fine-tuning our craft for over 70 years. The farm lie's on a district boundary, and dips its toes into all of Angus, Tayside and Perthshire. And our farming is just as diverse, as we believe farming should be - we currently grow soft fruit, veg, and cereals, and care for free range hens, and cattle.
Good old-fashioned family values are at the core of everything we do with the business, and help us stand the test of time.
Alston Arbuckle (Grandpa) established the business way back in 1945, with when he and his wife Annie (Granny) moved from Fife into a new farm tenancy at Lundie Castle Farm.
A father of 5, and a prominent local counciller, Alston was also particularly fond of his prize winning Highland ponies.
Meet the Arbuckles...
Peter and Susan Arbuckle
John lived and worked most of his life at Lundie Castle Farm, the orginal family home where he and Peter were brought up. He is to thank for the large cereals acreage that exists today, and the beef and dairy herds that have enjoyed Lundie Castle's hospitality over the years.
John enjoys a spot of curling, as does his wife Jenny and of course a Thursday night dram with the his old college friends.
John and Jenny Arbuckle
Mike is the son of John and Jenny, and joined the business in 2007. Over the past few years, he has created a thriving free range egg business from scratch, and has become a valued supplier to the 'Happy Eggs' brand.
Stewart is another 3rd generation farmer in the family (along with Mike), and son of Susan and Peter. He was a late addition to the business in 2013, coming from a non-agricultural background, and helped set-up the farm shop.
Stewart is mainly involved in the fruit side of things, and planted Scotland's first honeyberry orchard in 2014.
Zac is the farm pooch (or at least the one you'll see most scrounging around the farm shop!). He's developed a keen taste for strawberries over the years, and can often be found guarding his prized berries on a summers evening...
Peter, along with his brother John, acquired the land at Star Inn in 1974, and over time, through a lot of hard work and dedication, built the thriving fruit business that exisits today. Susan is to thank for building the incredibly loyal customer base that keep returning for our soft fruit year after year.
When not in the polytunnels or the office, you'll normally find Peter honing his handicap on the golf course - a department where he's working hard to keep up with his wife!
