Blairgowrie Farm Shop
Husband and wife Colin Steele and Jennifer Hustler-Steele opened Blairgowrie Farm Shop in 2007 to bring fertile Perthshire’s daily picked fruit and vegetables to its townsfolk. 'A hub for fresh and local goods, to help other local businesses and the local economy,' is how they describe their Reform Street shop, displaying baskets of kale, sweet potatoes, romanesco, parsley, damsons and seasonal sundries, if not plucked within a 25-mile radius, then elsewhere nearby in Scotland. Shelves stock the county’s jams, jellies, honeys, oatcakes and biscuits, while fridges contain Highland beef from Bridge of Cally, Puddledub pork and buffalo from Fife, and even Japanese ‘McWagyu’ beef from Perthshire. The couple deliver veg boxes every Friday and Saturday within a 10-mile radius, plus Perth and Dundee, and they do web and mail order via their website.
