Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, is covered for you certainly for your first morning. Our complimentary Scottish Breakfast basket comprises Sausages, Bacon, Eggs, Haggis, Tomatoes, Marmalade, Butter, Bread, Milk and Scottish Rapeseed Oil. There is also a bottle of apple juice, from Laprig Valley Farm near Kelso.
If you prefer, there is a vegetarian option which is equally delicious with Eggs Tomatoes, Cheese, Mushrooms, Red Pepper, plus Butter, Bread, Milk, Scottish Yoghurt and Scottish Rapeseed Oil.
If you are Gluten Free, don't worry as there is also an option to have a totally Gluten Free basket.
The Sausages, Bacon and Haggis are all from our local butcher, Shaws in Lauder. Their meat is all locally sourced. Marmalade is from Nan's Jams which is based in Pathhead, just up the hill on the A68. Butter is from Stichill Jersey Cows in Kelso, and The Rapeseed Oil is from Stevenson Farm in Haddington, East Lothian. Cheese is Scottish, usually from the Mull of Kintyre and the Milk is often from Perthshire. Tea is from Edinburgh.
The only things not totally Scottish are tomatoes, although they are often local, and bread. However, if you are Gluten Free or select Oatcakes then both the GF bread and the oatcakes are from Edinburgh.
Our Farm Shop also has Porridge, Granola, Yoghurt, Scottish Cheeses, and our own free range eggs.
Our Farm Shop has a freezer full of ready meals, plus beef burgers, sausages, steaks etc. The majority of meals are prepared by Karen of Pogbie Farm in Humbie, East Lothian. Karen uses all local produce and any meat is from her own cows or sheep. All the meals are Gluten Free and there are some vegetarian options as well. Curries, lasagnes, macaroni, soups, pasta bakes are some of the options.
In addition there are some lovely puddings - Banoffee Pie, Raspberry or Chocolate Pavlovas, and Strawberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake.
Steaks are from Shaws and there are some speciality organic sausages and beef burgers from Peelham Farm in the Scottish Borders.
We have a small freezer full of ice cream. This is traditionally made ice cream, again locally made in Eyemouth, and is prepared by Giacopazzis. It is amazing ice cream and there are small tubs, or larger tubs. Great in the summer but equally perfect when snuggling up in front of the television to watch a film or two.
There is also a selection of cakes and biscuits. Again all Gluten Free and delicious. We also have some lovely olives, crackers, crisps and popcorn if you are looking for some nibbles. Scottish Fudge, from the Scottish Borders, and Honeycomb or Mint Chocolate from Mackies if you feel like something a bit sweeter!
We have a selection of the lovely Fentimans drinks - Pink or Victorian Lemonade, Dandelion and Burdock, Elderflower, and Ginger Beer plus Laprigs variety of Apple Juices and FeverTree Tonics. We have still or sparkling bottled water too.
Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda will all delivery. Just order as normal and put in your accommodation name and address plus your mobile phone number.
We work with a few local Chefs who will come in and prepare your meal, wash up for you and provide you with a great meal and great food.
You can arrange for someone to prepare all your meals, or maybe a special afternoon tea, or a simple or elaborate evening meal. It can work out less expensive than going out, depending on numbers.
