An Illustration student exploring a group of workers around Edinburgh

A Farm Decision

Leave a comment

After discussion with my peers and tutor I came to the decision to focus on one stall in Edinburgh and trace it back to its source. This way I could really concentrate on one business and indulge in in- depth visual research and build more of a relationship with the place and the workers.

Whitmuir is a family run Organic Farm that produces fresh fruit and veg, free range chickens and eggs and the highest quality organic Scottish meat. They also have a shop, café and gallery on the farm making it a fantastic place to visit and see how an organic farm works.

I have decided to visit there this weekend coming and have a weekend of solid observational drawing whilst chatting to the workers and getting a feel for the farm.
