If you like locally grown produce and a bit of variety and quality that's different from supermarkets, it's worth a trip to farm shops like this. You may pay a little bit extra, but there's a distinct feel good factor when buying fresh produce. And there's no doubt it tastes better. This farm shop has friendly and helpful staff, and provides a delivery service if required. We are hoping to go to their open day on November 3rd, when they are running 'A Taste of Christmas', which allows customers to sample products from small, local, artisan producers. Well worth a visit!

We stopped here while walking on the Coastal Trail. It was wonderful! We wanted to go back to pick up some things for dinner but never made it. It closes at 5:00 and with all our sightseeing, we were unable to make it back on time. Wish we could have!

Thank you very much for reviewing our shop, we are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit. We shut at 5.30pm so perhaps you could have made it back after all. We often keep products in a fridge or freezer for people who are walking and you can collect them later, even if it is after opening hours. Next time you visit us please just ask! We hope to see you again soon, thank you again for your review.

Do you remember when seasonal fruit was sold in pop-up stalls at the side of the road? Too many of these became 'farm shops' that usually disappoint, selling expensive eat-in snacks and stocked with exclusive brand treats and tourist tat. There may be a poor selection of fresh produce, a distant reminder of bygone days.
So imagine my delight when I first walked into this place! A huge selection of delicious local produce, beautifully presented and run be people who are proud of what they do. Just look at the selection of local veg. on their web-site!

Thank you very much for such a fantastic review. Everyone here works very hard to ensure that each customer leaves with a positive impression of our wonderful East Neuk produce and it is lovely to hear that you were impressed. We are a farm shop where you can come and do your everyday shopping using delicious, fresh local produce rather than just a gift shop and so we are really pleased to hear you thought we are doing our job well. I hope the next time you are in our area you will pay us a visit. Thank you very much again.

We had the most amazing beef burgers from here. Staff were very friendly, it was a very clean, well layed out shop. Easy to move around and find things. Reasonable prices for the quality and types of food available. Cant wait to go back and stock up!

Dear Morag,
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our shop, we know it takes time to do these reviews and we really appreciate it. We are delighted you enjoyed your visit and our beef burgers. The beef used in all of our burgers is reared on our farm and so it is fantastic to hear they are being enjoyed. We look forward to welcoming you back!

What a wonderful shop, it has all the seasons vegetables and fruit which taste so much better than supermarket flown 5000 miles. The range of other goods is excellent as well and the homemade break is superb. My favourite is the Leek (sounds weird but its amazing)

Thank you very much for such a wonderful review. It is a fantastic time of year on the farm with lots of vegetables being harvested from the fields. We are delighted that you were impressed with our selection. The leek and cheese loaf is always a favourite, especially when it arrives warm in the morning. Thank you again for your comments, we hope you manage visit us again next time you are in the area.
