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.
I did some research into the farmers market and found an organic farm 20 miles from Edinburgh, Whitmuir the Organic Place. I was instantly interested in the ethics and strategy of the business so was certain this was the group of workers I wanted to research.
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.
