Lynn Cassells is the co-owner of Lynbreck Croft, a 150 acre regenerative agriculture unit in the Cairngorms National Park. Alongside her partner Sandra, they have turned Lynbreck from a derelict crofting unit to a vibrant and diverse farming landholding where they grow their own food, produce beef, pork, eggs and honey for sale and run a range of tours and courses.
Join us as Lynn shares her journey from life as an apprentice ranger to the rollercoaster she has been on since buying Lynbreck, and how it all sort of happened by accident! Lynn talks about her passion for farming with nature and being able to share that experience and knowledge with others, her love of food and its intrinsic connection to our physical and mental wellbeing, and the importance of prioritising rest.
Lynn gives a brutally honest personal insight into the highs and lows of the last seven years, from what it was really like to write their book ‘Our Wild Farming Life’, to the sometimes harsh realities of farming and the challenges they have faced and overcome, how this changed her, and how she always trusts her gut.
