A Ginger In Laurencekirk: Castleton Farm Shop and Café




I recently had a day off at the weekend and spent it with my mum and Scott. We visited Castleton Farm Shop and Café, which is surrounded by fields of strawberries and raspberries. I was gutted as there were a few days in July where, for £15, you could spend the morning picking strawberries, go for lunch in the cafe before learning how to make jam in the afternoon. 


The cafe is lovely and spacious, with massive windows looking out onto the fields and an outdoor seating/children's play area. There are plenty of small decorations and photo frames scattered about to give a homely touch. 


We ordered milkshakes which were made from the strawberries from the field and I chose to order macaroni and cheese with a slice of bread. The macaroni came brimming in a ceramic dish, smothered in cheese and with a massive chunk of bread to soak up the sauce. It was clearly home made and tasted delicious, although the portion was far more than I could eat!



After our meal, we were too full for pudding, so we had a wonder around the shop, which was full of local treats and interesting alcohol. We bought strawberries and raspberries, which were obviously fresh from the fields and tasted delicious. They lasted a good week and a half before starting to get squishy.

Although it's a bit out of the way I would definitely recommend anyone passing to give Castleton a try! The menu is a little limited for vegetarians, but the fresh food more than makes up for that. Have any of my local readers been to Castleton? Or have you ever been strawberry picking? I really would like to try it some time soon!
