The Rome family have been farming around Kilnford for over 300 years, over that time they would supply essentials such as milk, eggs, meat and veg to the local community. Of course in more recent years this traditional way of shopping has declined rapidly after the growth of the multinational supermarket chains.
However Jock Rome had a vision which would attempt to reverse the trend; to transform the derelict barns that lay on the land at Kilnford farm into something that would change the dynamics of the entire community. On the foundations of heritage, integrity and the great desire to present local people with top quality produce, a new ‘food hub’ for Dumfries and Galloway was created.
After three successful years we decided it was time to bring the best of Dumfries and Galloway produce to the rest of the UK.
