When we started to farm deer at Reediehill Farm, Auchtermuchty in 1973 it was difficult to find red deer breeding stock. We took some deer from the Isle of Rum and estate owners throughout Scotland and deer parks in England provided deer each winter. Eventually because we had established these routes we found new deer farmers from all over the world contacting us to buy red deer breeding stock. Now because so many new deer farms have been established we find the demand is less and we have concentrated on the breeding of white red deer for amenity deer parks.
