Located a mile outside St Andrews on the Leuchars road, this relatively new venture is at the glamour end of Fife's range of farm shops and farm cafés. There's a keen focus on beef, game and pork from the estate, with an on-site butcher, a well stocked fresh-meat and deli counter, and plenty of evidence of farm sourcing on the café menu. The shop is an attractive showcase for Scottish – and especially Fife – producers, and offers a sufficiently broad range to encompass everyday items, picnic or quick-cook meals, special treats and gifts. The ever-expanding café is a natural partner to the farm, butchery and shop, with familiar breakfasts, snacks, baking and hot drinks supplemented with daily soups, salads and specials. Expect to see estate meats, including game, as well as seasonal vegetables and fruit on the blackboard menus; look out too for a summer-time scheme to convert an old combine shed into a pop-up outdoor restaurant serving steak, chips and salad, all sourced from the surrounding acres.
