The farm was acquired by current owners, Robert and Eleanor Todd in 1992. They were attracted by the quality land and great Fife location. They intended to grow cereals, but with 5 acres of strawberries and raspberries already there, they decided to see if they would enjoy soft fruit farming too. From 5 acres in 1992 to over 200 acres today, the rest is history!

We’re grateful to Robert for taking the time to show us around the beautiful farm, allowing us to experience first-hand the complexities of how much goes into producing some of Scotland’s finest produce.
