As you might know, we are participating in the Innovative Farmer Fibre Flax Variety Trial, along with other farms and smaller-scale growing projects across Scotland, and in collaboration with the Soil Association, James Hutton Institute, Edinburgh College of Art at the University of Edinburgh, Heriot Watt University, and local artists including Rosie Bristow from Fantasy Fibre Mill.

On the 25th May, the BBC Radio Scotland programme Out of Doors visited the farm for an update from Rosie and our grower Jossie. The episode is available on BBC Sounds for a month.
