Forged by nature

Good honest locally produced food.

Why we do it?

We wanted to champion the best produce Scotland has to offer, sourcing local food where we can, or because it tastes great! A unique place to visit, shop for essentials and treats or enjoy something delicious to eat in comfortable surroundings.


We want to promote the best seasonal produce Stirling has to offer.


We want local farmers to benefit and provide an alternative to supermarkets.


We want to create a vibrant hub for people to enjoy freshly made food.


The Smiddy team

We have assembled a team packed full of experience and enthusiasm to bring this all to life.


Daisy and her uncle, Jamie, have worked tirelessly to bring all of this to fruition and are both long-term devotees of delicious, locally grown, food.


Linda manages the Smiddy shop and is always on the look-out for delicious and interesting food and drink, with a fantastic eye for homeware and gifts. She keeps the whole operation ticking over as it should, to very high standards.



Robbie runs the Smiddy Butchery and as well as offering the best cuts, cures his own bacon and makes his own haggis on the premises.



Dave is head chef at the Smiddy Café and his team make everything we serve to order, using products from our very own butchery and deli counter.



Oversees our bustling cafe, ensuring high customer service with top quality food and drinks.



Runs our lovely deli counter and is happy to help with anything from a gourmet picnic to a cheeseboard selection.


A little bit of history

We take our name from the old iron works or ‘smiddy’ that once served the local area for generations. We wanted to breathe life back into the old place and serve the community once again as a place for locals, visitors and foodies to enjoy.

Where to find us

We are 10 minutes from Stirling on the A873, just off the A84, close to Blair Drummond Safari Park.
