Foragers is a new family-run farm. We are located on the western edge of Stirlingshire in Scotland, just two miles from the conservation village of Drymen, and six miles from Loch Lomond. We currently grow chillies, culinary herbs, and tomatoes, all cultivated the old-fashioned way directly in soil, and using natural growing methods to maximise flavour.

These ingredients are being used in some exciting new products, the first of which is
Poached Chillies in Olive Oil. We have more taste bud tingling products planned for next season, so watch this space.

With the farm situated on an old, long-established wildflower and grass meadow, biodiversity is very much at the heart of the enterprise. Our main focus is to provide a rich, foraging haven for the struggling wild bumblebee and other insects and creatures that have lost much of their natural habitats in recent decades. By helping them, they will help us grow quality products high in flavour.

Seasonal culinary herbs include; Lemon Balm, Bay Leaf, French Tarragon, Lavender, Fennel, Sage, Hyssop, Thyme, Chives and Rosemary.

The Foragers Cider Orchard was planted in 2015 in an old wildflower meadow. Our first batch of blended craft cider, using nine varieties of cider apples from the orchard, will be available in 2018/19.
