Our historic agricultural building that we have converted
into spacious modern facilities for TFC Food Services. We
have a bright open office, a new product development kitchen
and a training room.
Our premises are sited in what was an octagonal, open-sided
barn known in the Scottish Borders as a 'round house', or
'gin-gang'. The eighteenth century building housed a horse
engine, driven by four horses walking round a central spindle,
each harnessed to a shaft. The power created was probably
used to drive a threshing machine in the building behind.
The roundhouse probably dates from around 1750-1840.
