Hopetoun Farm shop is now open
Hopetoun is one of Scotland’s finest stately homes and is extending the availability of produce reared on its farms and estate with the launch of a new Farm Shop. With generations of expertise in producing premier quality meat, game and poultry, Hopetoun is creating an exquisite food experience at a purpose-built destination adjacent to New Hopetoun Gardens.
Bringing together carefully selected award-winning Scottish produce to complement the Hopetoun product range, the Farm Shop will feature more than 100 food and drink signature brands in addition to a butcher, bakery and greengrocer offering. The baked goods are supplied by Edinburgh Spotlight favourite, Patisserie Jacob. A large cookery theatre will also facilitate demonstrations.
With a focus on traceability and terroir, its vision is to encourage consumers to make informed food choices safe in the knowledge that each product selected is among the best as judged not only by Hopetoun, but also by organisations such as Scotland Food & Drink and the Guild of Fine Food.
The aim is to source over 80% of the product range from within fifty miles of the estate. All of the produce on offer, apart from tea and coffee, will be sourced from Scotland.
Lord and Lady Hopetoun have been closely involved in the project. As a result, the Farm Shop is very much in keeping with the Hopetoun ethos of quality, sustainability and provenance. The Farm Shop is designed to celebrate, protect and preserve Scotland’s heritage for producing the finest foods.
Along with meat, game and poultry from the Hopetoun estate, there will also be a select range of quality prepared meals using Hopetoun produce. The range includes Fish Pie, Lasagne Verde, Beef Curry, Shepherds Pie, Lamb Tagine and Beef Meat Balls.
Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 8am – 6pm Saturday: 9am – 5pm Sunday: 10am – 5pm
