Protecting the environment and sustainability are important to Barnsmuir and reflected in its farming practices.

The Biodiversity Areas for Buntings and Bees Project is a partnership between Marks & Spencer, Kettle Produce, RSPB Scotland and four farmers in Fife (including Barnsmuir). It involves trialling a new cereal-based seed mix containing a variety of flowering plants which is designed to benefit pollinators and a range of farmland birds.


As a result of these measures, the farm is accredited by standards set by all the major supermarkets and authorities, including Red Tractor Assured Food Standard, LEAF and SMETA.
