Clyde Valley Tomatoes

In the earlier part of the 20th century there were in excess of 200 commercial tomato growers operating in the micro climate of the Clyde Valley. They supplied the whole of Scotland and much of the north of England.  By the end of the seventies there were virtually none left due to foreign imports, and that situation has persisted for the last 30 years. In early 2013 the regeneration of the industry began with a crop sown under glass. Heritage varieties including Ailsa Craig are among the varieties grown. First produce went to market May 2013.

Scottish Malting Barley

Malting barley is grown principally for production of Scotch Whisky. Total annual production in Scotland is approximately 650,000 tonnes, off which around 500,000 tonnes is required by the industry.
