About the Rhynd

The Rhynd farmhouse and steading were built well over a century ago and have been used for farming ever since. The Rhynd was predominantly a dairy, which remains to this day in one of the buildings, but it was also a base for farming cereals.

The cattle shed, where the event space now is, was filled with cattle until the late 1990s and you can still see rosettes on the wall from showing them. The soon-to-open café was used as a grain store upstairs and will feature much of the original stonework, timber and roof.

The Foster family has owned the Rhynd since the early 1950s when Major Derek Foster bought it as part of Leuchars Estate. His son John and his wife Clarinda farmed the land from the early 1970s and their youngest son Ed and his wife Natasha now help out.
