“We have a fresh delivery from Dunbar Bakery just in, fresh strawberries for watching Wimbledon on sale and fresh bacon for Sunday breakfast in the fridge.”

They are also selling their own meat (pork and lamb) and eggs and locally supplied vegetables, apple juice, dairy and a range of other edibles.

Portrait of St.Andrew

A village artist, Emma Mackenzie, was commissioned to paint a portrait of St.Andrew for the village church and the County of East Lothian. ‘The Athelstaneford St Andrew’ now hangs in the village church and can be viewed during church opening times.

More information on the background to the painting can be found here.

We’ve had a brilliant morning playing with all the delicious goodies in our new farm shop! Along with our own high quality produce; lamb, pork and eggs we have some fantastic locally produced items available.

We are opening officially this Friday from 9am so please pop by to say hi, grab your bacon and eggs while you’re in!

A village resident recently contacted Scottish Power and they have confirmed that the outage is now planned for the 26 July (later than was originally indicated). However, please note that this could still change and Scottish Power have assured people that they would provide 3 weeks notice in advance of the work.
