Welcome to Hopetoun Farm Shop
Hopetoun Farm Shop is a destination for Scotland's finest foods including fresh local produce from the surrounding Hopetoun Estate plus a wide selection of food and drink from award winning Scottish suppliers.
Our butchery offers a range of fresh Hopetoun reared beef, lamb, game and poultry from the Estate. Our delicatessen features our unique range of Hopetoun pies made in-store by our head butcher plus a huge range of cold meats, Scottish cheeses and fresh locally baked cakes. We also have a wonderful range of preserves, gifts, homewares, teas, confectionery, biscuits and oatcakes including a wide selection of gluten free products.
Farm Shop Grill & Cafe
During August and September we operate a pop up Grill and Cafe adjacent to the shop. This location offers the most magnificent views over the Forth and beyond which you can enjoy in the new covered seating area built around our large oak tree.
We serve a large range of delicious grill and BBQ items from our butchery plus morning coffees, breakfast rolls, baguettes and cakes from the delicatessen. Click here for more information on our new summer grill and cafe.
At Hopetoun we meet with Scottish suppliers and taste new local produce on a regular basis so that we can support local businesses whilst offering you the very finest foods from around the country. Through our regular farm shop events and tasting sessions you can often meet our suppliers yourself and pick up some cookery tips too.
At the farm shop we also love to celebrate the different seasons, food festivals and key dates with a variety of special offers, events and recipes for our customers. Sign up for our monthly newsletters and keep checking our Facebook page and Twitter for all the latest 'product of the week' offers, farm shop news and special offers.
We are located on the Hopetoun Estate near the village of Newton, only 12 miles west of Edinburgh and a few minutes from both the M9 and the south end of the Forth Road Bridge. To view a map and get directions please visit our location page.

Award Winning Produce and Service
Since Hopetoun Farm Shop opened in May 2011 we have won a number of prestigious awards for our customer service and for our Hopetoun produce.Within 6 months of opening we were accredited with 5 stars from Visit Scotland and have since retained these 5 stars every year.
Our own produce reared on the estate has also gained a number of prestigious stars since we opened. The Great Taste Awards gave us 2 stars for our Lamb & Mint Sausages and a star for our Topside of Beef in 2014, a star for our Rack of Hebridean Lamb in 2013, a star for our Venison Steaks and a massive 3 stars for our Free Range Hopetoun Chickens in 2012.
In 2013 we gained our first 'rural oscar' from Countryside Alliance by being voted Scottish Champions for Local Food 2013. We were also crowned FARMA Best Newcomer 2013 which recognised us as the best new farm shop in the UK!
And finally... during 2012 the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders awarded three of our own recipe butchery items with silver awards including our very popular Aberdeen Angus Steak Burgers.
'As Seen on TV'
We were chosen to feature in Paul Hollywood's BBC2 Pies and Puds series in November 2013 when he visited the shop and estate to get some Hopetoun game for his game pie! Our produce has also featured on Sunday Brunch on Channel 4 as requested by guest chef Mark Greenaway. Finally, we are currently working with BBC2's Landward programme on a game feature involving Nick Nairn!
Each award and accolade recognises a strength within the Farm Shop; our customer service, our superior home grown produce, staff knowledge, product innovation and an eagerness to promote the best of Scottish produce. We are incredibly proud and delighted to have gained these distinctions. We hope you can visit us soon and sample the finest foods that Scotland has to offer.
