February’s issue of Scottish Field is out now…

THE latest issue of Scottish Field magazine is on sale now, both in shops and online.

Inside our February edition, Galloway farmers David and Wilma Finlay share the story of how they became “The Ethical Dairy”.

“It’s a tale of triumph over adversity, which is enough to put even the most difficult of times into perspective,” explained editor Richard Bath.

“The interview done this month with the Finlays by our writer Cat Thomson is both inspirational yet cautionary.

“The couple not only flirted with financial ruin while trying to champion a new, more ethical method of dairy farming, but they did so while Wilma battled that most pernicious of diseases – cancer.

“Their courage and fortitude is something to aspire to.”
