PICK YOUR OWN UPDATE - Wednesday 24th August

We have had another busy weekend so fruit will be harder to find for the next few of days, strawberries and raspberries are also getting near to the end of the season.

Raspberries (Glen Ample), strawberries (Sonata), blackcurrants are plentiful (Ben Conan), gooseberries (Invicta) are nearing the end of the season and are hard to find, pea pods and sunflowers are just starting.

We have had a bit of rain over the last few days so wellie boots are advisable.

We operate a minimum spend of £2 per person (applies to walking age up) which is payable on entry to the PYO fields and can be redeemed against any fruit and veg picked but is not refundable.

This crop report was as off 9am on the date above, it does not reflect how busy we may have been since, we have no control over customer numbers.

 

 

 

If Craigie’s is about anything, it’s about the pleasure of enjoying good food.

So, we’re passionate about the taste of produce that’s really fresh because it’s as seasonal and local to our farm shop located to the west of Edinburgh.

That’s as true for what’s served in our farmhouse café as what you’ll find on our shelves. Some comes direct from our farm, some from small suppliers and farmers a little further afield. Wherever it hails from, we think it’s important to know its origins.

And finally, in our cafe, we believe that good eating starts with the best ingredients, skillfully-prepared to make the very most of their freshness and big, bold flavours. Nothing too fancy: good, honest food, with a menu that changes with what’s freshest and in season.

The way we see it, the simple pleasures in life almost always turn out to be the best.

Seasonality

At Craigie’s, we believe in seasonality - eating things when they are in season.

We don’t see the sense in flying in fresh food from distant continents or after it’s been in cold store for months and months.

Fruit and veg in season is tastier and, more often than not, cheaper. Of course, you can buy strawberries all year round, but eat one in February and it simply won’t compare with June’s sweet, fresh crop.

Follow the seasons and you can look forward to different treats all year round!
