Know the farmer, know your food.
Kilnford has been reborn. The old farmhouse and steading have been transformed from a sad dilapidated old farm, to a vibrant food hub that provides the very best local food that is available in Dumfries and Galloway.
There is more to Kilnford than our fantastic farm shop. Enjoy the courtyard and the play area and experience our modern Farmhouse Kitchen Café. Have a walk around the Nature Trail. It’s a whole new shopping experience.
If you love exceptional food, you’ll love Kilnford
Our butchery department is packed with home reared beef, lamb and pork. Find out how it is produced by clicking on the videos.
Rising Star Award
Excellence in retailing local food in Dumfries and Galloway has been recognised nationally. Kilnford Farmshop and Restaurant, on the outskirts of Dumfries, has been awarded the Rising Star Award at a presentation in Edinburgh organised by FARMA, the leading farm retail organisation in the United Kingdom. Kilnford faced strong competition in this section from across the United Kingdom.
The owner Mr Jock Rome commented,
“It is particularly pleasing that the huge effort made by our staff, both in the shop and on the farm, has been rewarded. They are committed to high standards in food production and presentation and so it is wonderful to be given national recognition. Kilnford Farmshop has created much needed jobs in the region, provided an outlet for a variety of local producers and a source of good local fare for our customers.”
