Craigie's Farm Deli and Cafe,

We drove up to Craigie's fruit farm just outside of Edinburgh city the next day. Luckily, I managed to borrow WY's GPS otherwise it would have been a bit of a challenge finding the place. At least there was plenty of parking space.

Anyway, once you get there. Just head to the main shed and pick up the wee plastic containers to collect your fresh fruits. If you unsure of where the fruits are, just ask one of the friendly staff... Trust me... you can't tell where the strawberries are from the raspberry from the distance.

Rows and rows of sheds could be found all over the farm

Can you make out what fruit this is ??

Hello~ ! Raspberry.
Don't be deceived by the red sweet appearance... It was so SOURRR!!!

Here's some freshly plucked raspberries for you to take away.

We spotted some cranberries too but there weren't in season

Blackcurrents too.

Here's a list of what they have to offer and the prices.

Any guess what these rows of plants are ??

Strawberries!.. The main reason why we came...

Peak a boo...

Remember to pick the red coloured fruits. !!

Here's our stash...

The Italian farmer ?

Packs of fertilised soil.

The young little plants slowly being inserted by hand.

When you are done, bring them to the main office to have them weighed..

There are ready picked packs for you to purchase too...

and for those who are not keen on fruit picking.... There's a children's animal farm nearby.
