Overton Farm rears cattle (including rose veal) and pigs, matured slowly in the Clyde Valley and then butchered on-site and made into bacon, sausages, haggis, pies and burgers, as well as cold cuts. The farm shop sells these and other local meats, their own barn eggs, alongside home-grown fruit and vegetables, fresh in season or frozen all year round. A small selection of cheeses takes in the artisan and large scale, local and international, and the list of products made on site includes home-baking and preserves. On Thursday, just after midday, Jim the fish man calls by. He's only parked up for half an hour, but if you can't make it Overton will take your order and hold it until you can collect. The farm also hosts a farmers' market on the first Saturday of the month.
A classic ‘old-school’ farm shop, it may not offer fancy presentation, but Overton has a great range of products from the farm and trusted local suppliers. Meat, butchered and prepared on site, features strongly, with beef, bits, lamb, venison and pies filling the chill displays alongside some home-prepared ready meals and a selection of other deli items and store goods. Outside are displays of fruit and veg from near and far, with some plant sales too. The adjacent tearoom, The Oven, has plenty of seating indoor and out, with their own eggs and meat featuring alongside a wide selection of snacks and treats. The Young family's operation has built a loyal following over the past two decades, boosted by regular car boot sales, point-to-point racing events and seasonal blossom and fruit days.
