Cafe, Farm Shop in Cupar & Howe of Fife
Cairnie Fruit Farm is a long established award-winning family run business in Cupar, and is a popular local landmark.
John and Cameron Laird’s farm, and Cairnie House itself, are beautifully situated on 120 acres, 45 of which are producing top quality fruit for the highly regarded Pick Your Own as well as for the supermarket soft fruit industry. There is an abundance of strawberries, raspberries, black/redcurrants, gooseberries, tayberries, brambles and cherries, all available to pick or to purchase ready-picked.
The farm has become a visitor attraction in its own right, with its busy farm shop, a Funyard for children, a café, and the “Mega Maze” sown in maize every year. By mid July when the maze officially opens, the crop will already have grown 4-5 feet in height. The crop grows at an astonishing average rate of an inch a day, and is over eight feet high when it is harvested!
The artistically designed labyrinth of pathways and blind alleys extends over six acres. The Mega Maze has only a short life before being harvested in October and fed to the cattle.
