Herbilicious Polytunnel

Sticking to our bee-friendly principles, our vegetables are organically and bio-dynamically grown by our crack team of horticulturists, which is led by Scotson Reeve.

Here are just some of the things our polytunnel is teeming with at the moment:-

  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Courgette
  • Rocket
  • Lettuce

Runner beans, garlic, broad beans, onions, tomatoes and cucumbers will all be ready to pick in the next couple of weeks. Perfectly timed to be ready for the opening of the Black Isle bar in Inverness. All the vegetables, salads and herbs used in the bar will be grown here on our organic farm!

As the days are getting warmer (we hope), we’re all looking forward to spending more time out in the garden. Why not give your plot a bee-friendly boost? Borage, nasturtium, shiznanthus, (aka. Butterfly Flower) are great pollinators for bees and offer long lasting colour.

Which brings us seasonally onto our newest beer Goldfinch 3.5% session I.P.A. launched this spring in Waitrose in Scotland and on draft across all Fuller Thomson bars.
Bursting with citrusy zing, this light, refreshingly hopped session IPA comes with the added bonus of being certified Gluten Free – good for you, good for the environment too and particularly good for your mate with the dodgy tum!
