Castleton Farm is a family run business owned by the Mitchells. The family bought the farm in 1992, inheriting a soft fruit crop of 15 acres. In 1999, the family took the decision to stop dairying to increase the soft fruit production to a commercial scale. Since 1992 the acreage and production has grown each year to the current 102 acres of strawberries, 20 acres of raspberries, 60 acres of blueberries and 15 acres of cherries. We supply our produce to multiple retailers, with the majority of the fruit going to Marks & Spencer, Tesco and ASDA.
Castleton Farm Shop & Cafe, situated in the rolling countryside of the Mearns, showcases local produce at its best. Castleton Farm is one of the most northerly leading soft fruit growers in Scotland producing award winning fruit from May until November.
In 2013, we extended the cafe and shop due to continued customer demand. Our shop supplies delicious local produce, fine foods, gifts and more. The cafe proves very popular with a wide variety of mouth watering dishes, ranging from breakfast, light lunches, paninis, salads, and of course our extensive specials board and desserts.
