This week, we are at Charleton Fruit Farm in Montrose. Charleton is located just on the outskirts of Montrose – if you head out of Montrose on the Aberdeen road, it is on the left hand side as you head out. It is a family run business and has been since 1946 having grown considerably throughout the years. Originally, the main produce was raspberries but you can now get a far greater range of produce including strawberries, asparagus and potatoes.
Picking season is now underway so why not plan a visit and go and pick a large bucket of strawberries! We have visited the farm a few times when we have been down visiting family. It is such a great place to take the children – you can pick your fruit, followed by a bite to eat, a look around the gift shop and then enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while the children play in the super park!
