Meet the owners
Hello! We are Andrew and Jo Morris, the founders of The Snug and farmers at Logie Farm, Newburgh Fife.
The Morris family has been farming for generations. Working the land in partnership with nature is all we know. Born and raised in Caithness, my (Andrew’s) norse roots and highland heritage is something I and my extended family are immensely proud of.
I (Jo) am originally from a small mining town in Fife but moved north to Caithness many years ago to live with Andrew. We share the passion of producing quality food, conservation, regenerative farming and preservation of all that is good about British farming, past and present.
We moved into Logie Farm from our family farm in Caithness (which the Morris family had lived in for centuries) in 2018. It’s been a whirlwind of highs, lows, sweat, tears, mistakes and achievements. With every season that goes by, we get to know the farm better and build a stronger partnership with the land. We consider it an absolute privilege to farm at Logie.
The Snug site is both enchanting and truly breathtaking! With a view of the tidal changes in the River Tay by day, and dancing northern lights and Dundee city lights by night, it is mesmerising.
It’s a really special place for us and we can’t wait to share it with you. The Snug also economically supports our farm, so every penny you spend with us directly supports our families future in British agriculture.
Lowering Our Carbon Footprint
Preservation of the environment and regenerative faming is close to our hearts. The company that designs/ manufacturers our accommodation, prides themselves on the pods being of the highest quality, energy efficiency and sustainable.
They pod manufacturers and designers were awarded the 2020 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category. We also love that they are manufactured in central Scotland, thus keeping the impact of travel and fuel consumption to a minimum. To further minimise the impact on the environment and maintain natural beauty, the Snug is nested amidst an abundance of wild grasses and Scottish Providence wild flowers which are a delight to the senses.
The Snug is an off-grid site, meaning that we have private water, power and drainage.
At Logie Farm we work tirelessly to ensure that we farm in harmony with nature and continuously strive to reduce our carbon footprint. We are involved in number of Scottish Government backed environmental schemes which include creating wildlife corridors and habitats to feed the birds, insects and other wildlife throughout the winter months.
We have planted over 6500 hedge plants in 2021 which will offer a home and protection to our wildlife, as well as sequeste carbon from the atmosphere. We have also recently created a pond for wildlife and insects to have uninterrupted use of, as well wader scrapes to allow certain birds a safe place to nest.
In terms of our livestock we are certified as a “high welfare” farm. Our cereal production is also quality assured and sold locally to whisky distillers and whole-sellers for food production or animal feed.
