For more than 100 years, the Thomson family has been growing raspberries on their 40-hectare holding, split over two farms on each side of Blairgowrie. Nowadays, current owners Peter and Melanie Thomson also grow strawberries, blueberries, gooseberries, redcurrants, cherries and aronia, all of which are sent to their modern packhouse facility in the town centre to be cooled and distributed. As well as supplying wholesale, they also sell directly to the public from distinctive, hard-to-miss strawberry-shaped kiosks, which can be found on the roadside just north of Blairgowrie and outside St John's shopping centre in Perth. The company also produces the fruit-based ‘natural energy’ drink Berry B.
