Every day I walk into the farm and there’s a squad of piglets mooching about. We brought a sick sow in to keep an eye on her and she then had 8 piglets. They’re now 6 weeks old and they have started venturing out.

Pillars of Hercules, Falkland, Fife.
Blink and you miss it. Pillars of Hercules is that typical hidden gem. Turn just off the A912 and it unfolds like a horticultural tardis. Shop, café, box scheme, vegetable farm, hens for eggs, and the best salads in Scotland. Its owner, Bruce Bennett likes it that way. Local food for local people, and he means it. No brown tourist signs, no fanfare, only a vision realised over 30 years of shovelling compost and having the confidence to get the practical jobs done.
Good food culture in Scotlands big year.

Phew. Lets all catch our breath. Scotland is having a very busy year. Commonwealth games, Referendum, Ryder Cup, AND good weather. As farmers we have had a near perfect growing year. We’ve needed it. After the very challenging growing seasons of 2012 and 2013 we were due a good one, and with impeccable timing the weather gods delivered.

About 3 weeks ago I got an email.
In it was this: “Dear Chefs” it began… oh thats not me I’m not a chef. Er, yes my name is there on the list. “You will each produce 833 portions of healthy, nutritious, & tasty food with waste vegetables, 2 litres of rapeseed oil, in 3 pots, in 4 hours with help from some volunteers. Please send us your recipes.” I began to whimper. So much so that Hugh intervened and I had to admit that I’d said one “yes” too many. He laughed very hard, at me, and I suppose so did I. This was going to be a challenge. After a few recipe trials I made my very simple food decisions and sat back.
