About Us

The Buffalo Farm has Scotland's largest herd of Water Buffalo - the buffalo roam the hills at Clentrie farm Auchtertool. The business was set up in the spring of 2005 with the objective of producing superior quality beef to market direct to the public both through local door to door sales and on a wider scale through farmers markets.
The attractions to the water buffalo are countless, they produce a very healthy meat that is lower in cholesterol, higher in mineral content and less than half the total fat content of conventional lean beef and in the words of Chef Nick Nairn they taste “pretty damn fantastic”. Find out more about the health benefits of Buffalo meat here.
Perhaps the reason for their excellent flavour is they are the same animals they were thousands of years ago as they have not been subject to many of the modern intensive farming practices.
 
Steven Mitchell, who owns the Buffalo Farm, is the 6th generation of the Mitchell’s farming in Fife, following in the footsteps of Robert Mitchell who began farming in the early 1800s.
 
As a child Steve’s passion was always cows, but inspired by his uncle’s pork farm and its development into a retail business, which he found suited his personality and skills, he considered how his love for cattle could be developed into his own idea and The Buffalo Farm was born.
 
The Buffalo Farm has since developed into a full butchery business offering traditional butchery counters, a retail wholesale outlet, catering supply and event and private catering.
