A true local and family business

Our story

The Gammie's moved to the "Howe o the Mearns" in the 1920's, recognising the great qualities of the red clay soil and falling for the charm of the rolling hills. Working closely with the land and community this farming family gained a great insight into the local area, local produce and local way of life. 

80 years later, under the management of brothers Jim, George & David, Kirktown Garden Centre was bought with the aim to diversify. While always putting gardening first we aimed to offer more, with the dream of one day offering our local produce straight to local people.

A series of changes have taken place to Stonehaven garden centre since then. We have gone through 2 major renovations to give you a large food hall offering the best of local and international produce, an inviting restaurant that creates quality home baking and uses local produce where possible and of course a brand new area to focus on our gardening products. 

2014 has been been an important year for Kirktown. Along with the renovation in January, we also started selling "Farmer Andrew's Aberdeen Angus" which is our own beef, reared in pastures just north of Laurencekirk ( just 14 miles away). Along with this we offer our own fresh farmed vegetables and a great range of other local produce. With Jim and David's children now actively involved in the family business, the aim is to continue to grow and celebrating the local.
