The farm is now closed for Winter.
The farm is currently closed for the winter months, starting back on our boxes deliveries and local markets around May time.
Meanwhile, we are working hard to prepare the farm for next season with some exciting projects on the go:
- A new Garden at Airlie to Scale up the farm production
- A new salad tunnel to build on the farm for your favorite greens
- Setting up a a vegetable nursery in the Keder house to support our new program: “growing for Angus”.
~Veg box deliveries~
Despite the beauty of the Glen, we understand that the farm is not easy to get to; so in order to make our produces more accessible to the local community, we have been running a great veg box scheme for the last year covering Kirriemuir, Glenisla and Forfar.
We are offering ultra fresh and seasonal produce, grown without pesticide on our farm or our local partners, running from May up to Christmas.
To keep delivering quality service through the season, the amount of weekly boxes are limited. We have almost reached our maximum capacity for this year already; so make sure you’ve got your name on our list to be part of our routes!
Friday is our delivery day, using home deliveries or some drop off points available in your area :
covering: Kirriemuir, Lintrathen, Glenisla, Forfar.

~ Markets ~
With the success of our veg boxes deliveries and the ever-growing reputation of our tasty veggies, we are scaling up the production of the farm this year to start selling our produce on different markets around angus and beyond!
You might have already met us in December with our exciting first markets in Forfar, Broughty ferry and Arbroath. We are now delighted to get the chance to see you in St Andrews, Cupar and Carnoustie at the markets through Spring.
The proper locations and dates will be updated soon.
New service coming up for 2023!
In line with our new program starting up this year and supported by our own seeds bank, we are excited to develop a vegetable nursery alongside the farm production.
A chance for the amateur (or late) gardener to get acces to the best varieties growing on the farm and enjoying them at home!
Commun wisdom is to always buy your plugs and pots in a nursery further north than your garden; to make sure your seedlings are fully acclimated and resistant to your environment.
All our plants are started from seeds in our greenhouse and dispatch once ready to go in the ground.
Get in touch to hear more about our services or donate your old pots and trays.
The idea of the farm is not just about providing amazing quality produce to the community; it’s also opening its doors for people to come and reconnect with their surrounding, learning to grown their food and getting access to knowledge and sustainability.
Because being outside, doing simple manual activities and socialising in a safe (and mesmerizing) environment is a great way to spend the day; holding the promise of a good night sleep afterward!
And with the new season starting off and the days getting longer, there is plenty of work to be done to get everything ready before planting our outside crops.
From rough physical activities (shifting stones, building walls, ground levelling, carving banches…) to tasks requiring patience, delicatess and precision (weeding, sowing, planting…), there is occupation for almost anyone with any abilities.
And as long as we are all faffing around in a peaceful and respectful way, we are garanteed to have so much fun at the farm!
