Oh hello February- we're pretty excited for you this year.

Snow drops are poking their heads through the soil on the farm, plans for the year and being pulled into place- from workshops to farm dinners, the houses and huts are nearly finished their "spruce ups", and our first guests of 2022 are due to arrive this weekend.

So we thought we'd put some suggestions together for you- our favourite things to do in and around the farm in February.


Scottish Snowdrop Festival

Why not make your way over to Cambo, Kingsbarns, and wander their beautiful hibernating gardens- Cambo Snowdrop festival runs from the 25th January-11th March.

You can find a full list of participating gardens on the link below. Your inner galanthophile will thank you.


Head over to Dunkeld

Our favourite go-to destination. Lunch at the Taybank , bread shopping at Aran bakery- with the rest of your goodies picked up from Lon , then top off your day with a glass of wine at Redwood Wines.

The Farmstand is Reopening

The beloved Guardswell Farmstand is reopening! Some winter veggie goodies will be available- with these ramping up as the season progresses. Its an honesty box farmstand- where you can pay by cash, or payment link. 

Provisions Store

For those of you staying with us- why not visit our little Provisions Store in the Steading. Open by request or when the wee sign is outside. We've got marshmallows for toasting, beautiful olives, our favourite beer and wine, Diggers cider, and lots of other goodies for you to take home with you.

Happy February- and hopefully see you soon.

Team Guardswell
