Black Isle Berries

Black Isle Berries Home grown fruit and vegetables Black Isle Berries is a family run business growing a range of seasonal soft fruit and vegetables, which are sold within a small shop on the farm.

The vegetables we grow include carrots, broccolli, cabbage, beetroot, peas, parsnip, cauliflower, cucumbers and tomatoes. During the summer we have ready-picked or pick-your-own strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants and gooseberries. We also produce apples, plums, damsons and greengages. We also make and bottle our own apple juice on the premises. The shop also stocks a range of other locally produced items such as beef, eggs, honey, preserves, oatcakes and home-made tablet.

Farewell Morton Fraser 22/12/1933 - 07/01/2022

You were a big part of Ryefield over the years, house builder/tunnel builder/grass cutter/tree planter/shop worker/woodworker/fridge builder, and motivator when things got tough etc. We couldn't have managed without you at the start and never really coped when you stopped.

R.I.P from all at Ryefield - your legacy is in all the tunnels and buildings and trees that are here today

Did you know we make a huge proportion of the food we sell here on the farm?

Our aim is to sell as much of what we grow direct to customers through our farm shop. This was a great idea, until we realised that people don’t buy burgers in winter, sometimes our rhubarb isn’t good enough for the shop and dad sowed half a field in beetroot by mistake. It quickly became apparent that to avoid waste (we hate waste) we needed to do something with all these products.

It started off small, mum and dad started making steak pies in our kitchen. However, soon it snowballed and our farmhouse kitchen, as lovely as it is, became too small. To cut a long story short we bought a commercial kitchen and now work seven days a week producing all sorts of delicious products. Made by us (Mark is one of our team, in the picture), using real ingredients.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ steak pies & mince rounds
πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³ quiche
πŸ§‘β€πŸ³ sausage casserole & Italian meatballs
πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ scotch eggs
πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³ home baking
πŸ§‘β€πŸ³ jams and chutneys
πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ bone broths
πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³ beef dripping
πŸ§‘β€πŸ³ bread crumbs
πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ crumbles and fruit pies
πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³ and so much more…

We NEVER buy products in and put our label on them. If something has an Ardross Farm label then we have made it here, on the farm. Our business is based on trust.

What is your favourite product?

Last night was spent dehydrating lots of lovely fruit ready for upcoming events! πŸ₯°πŸŠπŸ‹πŸπŸπŸŽπŸ‘Œ Dehydrating fruit saves on waste, makes the most of some fruit that’s only in season for a short window, like these stunning blood oranges from Black Isle Berries, and the end product also looks super pretty in drinks! 🍹
Wednesday is delivery day and yesterday we dropped off some Coppa, mixed packs and snack sticks to Farm Ness near Inverness. You can also find our charcuterie at: Druid Temple Farm Black Isle Berries Corner on the Square Dornoch Stores
Puss likes the new box from BIB which I used to take the veg home in this morning. Everyone’s a winner!

Hi there - what have you got ready for picking just now??
Thank you for providing me with some excellent vegetables to make my Giardiniera - carrots, celery, cauliflower and green, red, and yellow peppers in a sweet and sour pickling liquid. Ready to eat in a couple of weeks with cold cuts and cheese. Go Italian in Scotland!
Eat Well from a Farm.. Black Isle Berries is based at Ryefield Farm, Tore, on the Black Isle. During the summer season, Black Isle Berries offers you the opportunity to pick your own home-grown, good quality fresh fruit some of these include Strawberries, Raspberries, Gooseberries, Red & Blackcurrants, Plums, Apples, Damsons and Cherries. The vegetables they sell range from Potatoes, Carrots, Parsnips, Beetroot, Garlic and so much more. Pick Your Own fruit is available from approximately the end of June to the end of August. They also sell a range of local products to complement their own produce such as free range eggs, honey and cheeses- perfect for a healthy Scottish meal! http://www.blackisleberries.co.uk VisitScotland Visit Inverness Loch Ness Scottish Agritourism
Hey, Gang, ever wonder how good a kebab shop meal would taste with superior, local ingrendents? Even sober, that's something I could sink my teeth into! So, here it is, this Saturday's Lockdown Menu: KEBAB SHOP NITE That's right, some your favourite late-night dishes concocted with local and home-made ingredients (with one notable exception) for a singular gourmet-food-served-in-a-paper-box experience. Plenty here for Vegans, too! As usual, we'll also have our Everyday Menu available Fri-Sun. Menus and online ordering are now live on our Website, so why not have a look? Jim This week's local producers: Cromarty Brewing Co Black Isle Dairy The Bakery Inverness Black Isle Berries Allarburn Farm Shop Munro Butcher - Butchers and Wholesalers
Hey, Gang, just a word about ingredients for this Saturday's Paris Nite. Over the years, you've heard me rant about local this and local that and support thy neighbour yadda yadda yadda. And you have a right to wonder, "is this chap full of hot air, or does he put his money where our mouth is?" So, thought I'd share with you a typical shopping list for our week. Our beef comes from the butcher 4 doors down from us, Munro Butcher - Butchers and Wholesalers, where it is sourced -- when not from 2 miles up the hill on the Black Isle -- always from Scotland. Our seafood -- with the exception of prawns -- is all from the North Sea or Irish Sea, courtesy of Campbells Prime Meat Ltd. We're just back from Black Isle Berries, where we bought oatmeal from Golspie Mill, milk from Black Isle Dairy, eggs from Allarburn Farm Shop and biscuits from Stag Bakeries (to munch on whilst we cook). Today we'll buy cheese from Connage Highland Dairy and pick up our bespoke bread & rolls from The Bakery Inverness. Does all this cost more than grabbing the cheapest stuff at Tesco? Yes, but when you know the quality is better and that your neighbor is able to make a living, it's not really a decision, is it? Jim
