Primarily a strawberry farm, Cairnie's appeal doesn't just rest on its soft fruit, but the array of activities available on the site. The highlight of these is a professionally designed Maize Maze, which appears each year in summer and by early autumn has daunting 8ft-high walls of corn, designed around a theme. There are also trampolines, pedal go-karts, sandpits and picnic benches. All sorts of berries and currants are available through the season from early June onwards for PYO, from the shop, or utilised in the café, from strawberry tarts to Janetta's ice-cream made with Cairnie's fruit. The café, which shares a large wooden building with a gift and produce shop, does a line in uncomplicated but tasty soups, stovies, Puddledub bacon rolls, baked potatoes, home baking and own-berry smoothies, all at reasonable prices and well set up for families. A new strawberry pod dishes out berries and refreshments outside the main store and can be occasionally spotted at local shows.
