Each week we’ll be looking at three foods we’re trying to source. If you’ve got the answers, or are having trouble finding something in particular, email us at fifediet@yahoo.co.uk

This week we’re trying to answer:

Where can I get Fife grown oats?

Where can I get Fife grown wheat for flour?

Where can I get organic dairy produce?

If you’re a supplier of these foodstuffs, get in touch. Or if you know the answers, leave a comment below.

    Is there a retail outlet in the North if Scotland for Hutchison@s Flour?

    Mike Smith from the Scottish Agricultural College has contacted us writing:

    “I have asked around, it appears Quaker Oats mill all their oats in Cupar, Fife. That is not to say that they use only locally grown oats, but some would be.

    There are a couple of flour mills in Fife as follows:

    1. Hutchison’s Flour, East Bridge, Kirkcaldy, Fife KY1 2SR Tel: 01592 267191

    2. Aberfeldy Oatmeal Ltd, Burnside Mills, Cupar, Fife KY15 4DQ Tel 01334 652912

    I think you would need to contact them to find out if they use local flour.

    It would be unlikely that much wheat flour is produced locally for making bread. Bread requires “hard” wheats that cannot really be grown in Scotland, most come from Canada. Scotland is good at producing soft wheats, it is these types of wheats that are probably produced locally, but would be used in biscuit manufacture.”

    So its a biscuit diet!
