Edenmill are a good example of a modern farm innovating to reach as many potential customers as possible, making it as easy as pie to buy their products. As well as having the increasingly necessary online shop, they do the local rounds in a mobile shop, visiting Strathblane, Blanefield, Balfron and Fintry on Thursdays and Milngavie and Bearsden on Fridays. There’s also a farm shop on-site, selling their Aberdeen Angus beef, local meat, game, free-range chicken and pies – customers can call Edenmill’s butchers to discuss exact requirements before turning up. They are the only producer of smoked meats in the central belt, preserving salmon and trout as well as beef, lamb, pork and venison. Diversification has also taken them into the Christmas tree market which, along with their seasonal stocks of Kelly Bronze turkeys and all the trimmings, makes them something of a one-stop festive shop.
