OUR STORY

Second Generation Family-Owned Business

The Brewster family have been farming in the heart of Scotland for over 40 years. 

In 2007 Alex Brewster saw a gap in the egg market in the Tay Valley and subsequently launched The Egg Shed at Rotmell Farm.   

Unashamedly nerdy about soil, Alex is always developing his farming practice to help provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly future for his farm and family.
