The Farm Garden

The Farm Garden is owned and run by Peter and Jeannette Smith.
We moved to Royal Deeside in January 2007 with the aim of becoming as self sufficient as possible in terms of food. Jeannette’s been growing her own vegetables for nearly 20 years now and we both decided when we moved here that we would like to share our delicious vegetables with other people. So we started The Farm Garden in 2008 delivering home grown fresh veggies every week to our new customers! 2014 has been our seventh season and we are happy to say that our customers keep coming back to us so hopefully we must be doing something right!
Their comments and feedback has been invaluable to us over the past six seasons and helps keeps us on our toes! We’re not a large business so we have to limit the number of customers we can deliver to. We feel by keeping the business smaller, the quality of our product and the service we provide remains high.
We also produce Marmalades Jams Curds and Chutneys which we sell at Torphins market each Wednesday and other local events such as the highland games. We also supply these to local Guest houses etc. Each May we have our annual plant sale at Dinnet Hall selling Bedding, Herb Tomato and Vegetable plants all grown by us for local gardeners.
