Parkhill Farm

Located in the Inner Tay Estuary, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for migratory birds, Parkhill is an innovative agroforestry farm, growing malting barley and Scottish heritage and classic cider apples over 537 acres and has been in the Howison family for more than a century.

Our apple trees are alley cropped in an arable field and underplanted with a permanent wildflower mix, which attracts pollinators and pest eating insects that spread throughout the crops, so that our apples can grow, unsprayed, to make our Medium Dry Scottish Cider, AIPPLE.

Bordering the Holy Burn, Parkhill Farm grows malting barley for Lindores Abbey Distillery on various aptly named fields, such as Priest’s Burn and Abbey Fields — the very fields where the monks would have grown their barley.
