The berry industry has been an important part of Blairgowrie’s history. Known as “Berry Toon” it kick-started Scotland’s soft fruit industry in the early 1900s. Since then, there have been many changes to the industry; from where the fruit is sold, to who picks them, to which fruits are grown. Despite all the changes the industry remains important to the town. 

Why not get involved this summer to find out more about the history and raise money for charity. We’re organising a number of pick your own days. Whether you’ve picked berries before or you’re a newbie, it’s a great day out and you’ll get to take home a healthy, tasty treat!
All money raised will be donated to Macmillan. Macmillan have been a great support to our family over the years, particularly in helping care for my granny. The work that they do to help people in times of need with cancer is invaluable.

Thomas Thomson (Blairgowrie) Ltd, Ashgrove Rd, Blairgowrie and Rattray, Blairgowrie PH10 7EX

20th, 27th, 28th August and 3rd, 4th September, 10 – 4pm

What to bring
Sturdy shoes, water, an old ice cream tub to pick in (or punnets can be provided)

We hope the pick your own days will raise money to help people for years to come. 

Thank you,
The Thomsons
