Castleton Farm at Fordoun, near Laurencekirk in Aberdeenshire which is already well known in the area for its farm shop has unveiled new branding and a new range of chilled and frozen ready meals which will be available in both retail outlets and online. The move comes as the farm shop and café reopens following a relaxation in Scotland’s Covid restrictions.
Ross Mitchell, who owns Castleton Farm with his wife Anna, commented, “It’s a lively and varied place to work and we always have an eye on the horizon. We need to diversify and adapt as the food industry evolves. This is what pushes us to explore exciting new markets and technologies.
“Our success has been built on a firm foundation of traditional values and methods. People know us, and they appreciate what we stand for. They understand our commitment to sustainability and ethical farming. So, while we’re trying something new, the consumer will be reassured they can rely on the Castleton reputation for quality, taste and service.”
Since 2019 the company has supplied SPAR stores across Scotland with strawberries.
