Knowes farm shop is a friendly wee place run, since October 2012, by Ian Baird and Tommy Dale. Fruit and veg from Knowes Farm itself is the mainstay, grown by the Cochrans who live on the farm and who ran the shop for years. The eggs on sale are laid by free-range hens that you can feed when you visit. Meats and cheeses are brought in from nearby, and there's also a range of preserves, pates and desserts. The 'sun and dung' vegetables aren't certified organic, but they are grown with care and without pesticides - pick your own was introduced in 2012. Baird and Dale first worked together to sell the lobster and crab that Dale's father lands at North Berwick, so seafood now features more prominently at the shop.
