Starting at Macbeth’s Butchers which is a family run business that provides high quality meat products throughout the UK.

In the main, the beef is provided from their own farm, Edinvale, in upland Moray where they rear traditional Scottish native breeds. These are reared in as an extensive, natural environment as possible being fed grass, home grown hay or silage and no growth promoters. Macbeth's also supply a full range of pork and lamb from local farms with a similar philosophy. Macbeth's venison and game is also sourced locally.

Over the past year 35 crofters and their families have received grant funding totalling over £1 million to build and improve their homes.
