Damhead Organic foods
Damhead was established by James and Sue Gerard in 1989, when organic food production was in its infancy.
All fresh produce and groceries at Damhead are 100% organic. We believe organic is best for your health, and best for our land. We seek out the best prices so you don't have to compromise.
All our products are clearly labelled with country of origin and our staff are always on hand to deal with your requests or queries. All vegetables are from Damhead and local growers where possible.
Our range includes eco friendly household goods and toiletries, Ecover refills, locally sourced meat ,poultry and dairy produce, wine and beer.
Damhead home grown produce as the season unfolds includes cherry tomatoes, fresh sweetcorn, kale, spinach, herbs and salads.
Shopping should be a pleasure, and we at Damhead will do our best to make your visit enjoyable. The coffee is free and children (and adults) can enjoy feeding our three wonderful pigs.
We look forward to your visit.
We are situated about a mile along the Old Pentland road from Hillend, or alternatively we can be reached easily from the new Ikea store at Straiton, where Old Pentland road meets the Leadburn road
