Muddy Boots at Balmalcolm and Blacketyside, past Leven, both have home-grown asparagus on sale right now. Check out some of our asparagus recipe ideas here. Muddy Boots have strawberries about to arrive too…first variety is Honeoye, then, Clery, Elsinore, Darcy through the summer.

Allanhill Fruit Farm have Elsanta strawberries ready now.

Cairnie Fruit Farm will have strawbs on offer by the end of June: Elsanta, Sonata and Ava.
