Last night, Lorna Jackson, on behalf Charlesfield Farms Ltd, attended the SCDI (Scottish Council for Development and Industry) Ministerial roundtable dinner, with Mr Ivan McKee MSP, at Greens of Gretna. The Minister gave an overview of the three main areas of his portfolio. These are Trade, Implementation and Innovation. The conversations over dinner and after in a Q&A session with the Minister, were focused on lack of transport infrastructure and affordable housing in the South of Scotland. Also, how could the South of Scotland be promoted both internally to Scotland and externally to the wider world, as a place to do business. It is hoped the new South of Scotland Enterprise Agency will give a focus and strategic direction to support these areas.
Harvest has started here at Charlesfield Farm in 2019, with the Oats turning a beautiful golden colour, not quite ready for harvesting and the Rye all safely harvested in the lee of the Eildon Hills in the distance

Coming soon to book before Christmas 2019: Elderflower Cottage is a lovely self-contained stone cottage, based at Charlesfield, near St Boswells in the Scottish Borders. The Cottage, situated in a walled Garden on a working arable farm, will sleep four people, with 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen-diner and a large living room. We are a mile from the main A68 road, in easy reach of Melrose and the central Borders. We are a short drive from Tweedbank Railway station, which has a regular 50 minute train journey to Edinburgh.
