An Introduction to Hopetoun
Hopetoun is a thriving rural estate located 12 miles to the West of Edinburgh. Home to Scotland’s finest stately home Hopetoun House the estate spans 6,500 acres along the Firth of Forth.
The Hope family have been growing their own produce and rearing animals on the Estate for hundreds of years with historical records of home grown produce dating back as far as 1754. Lord and Lady Hopetoun have a great passion for local food and a desire to share the bounties of the estate.
In 2011 this was realised in the opening of Hopetoun Farm Shop and the family’s mission to offer Scotland’s finest foods. Their commitment to stocking the shop with at least 80% Scottish produce, half of which from a 50 mile radius, has proved to be both unique and extremely successful resulting in a strong local customer base. Following the success of Hopetoun Farm Shop, including a large number of prestigious retail awards, this online shop was launched late 2012.
The Hopetoun Butcher
The core offer at Hopetoun Farm Shop is the fresh butchery range featuring produce reared on the surrounding Estate. The range includes over 70 formats of all types of meat including beef, lamb, venison, free range chickens, turkeys, pheasants, partridge, pigeon, rabbit and hare. The facilities for rearing pigs at Hopetoun are not adequate for the importance of the product so we source all of our pork and bacon from a long established and credible Scottish supplier in Ayrshire.
Our beef and lamb are reared on our farm and our chickens, turkeys and game are all reared, slaughtered and processed on the farm and sold through the farm shop. Venison is selected either from stock roaming wild on the estate or from the 2 herds of deer (one Red and one Fallow) which occupy the park land.
All of our livestock are reared in an environmentally friendly way and we are always happy to discuss and share our passion for good husbandry and welfare standards, and the fact that the animals are all traceable and reared on the estate.
Other Hopetoun Ranges

Other ranges include one of the largest selections of Scottish cheeses, fresh bakery products, fruit and vegetables, local eggs and dairy products, preserves, confectionary, books, gifts and an enviable range of drinks including our own Hopetoun whisky and ales.
