Visited in Aug, Sept and Nov 2019. Hubby enjoyed looking around all the old machinery and I enjoyed learning about bees and tasting the different types of honey. When we took the kids they loved having a snack in the double decker bus and walking down to the chain bridge. A great little trip to somewhere a bit different!

Whilst the farm and shop are closed at the moment, the online store is offering an excellent service. Ordered some items to go by post that arrived the next day; all very well received. Also did a ‘click and collect’ and that, too, was well presented and worked very well. Highly recommended.

We called in here out of pure interest.
Rather bizarrely when we called there were 2 helicopters offering rides.....

The shop/info centre was very interesting also offering 'taste before you buy'. So we did and we bought!

Unfortunately we could not try the Cafe Bus as they very busy.

Visited on recommendations of friends. So disappointed, a collection of farmyard junk and a short history of bee keeping. The actual Chain Bridge at the bottom of the hill is more interesting

Situated in a beautiful site just above the river Tweed Chainbridge and adjacent to the historic chain /iron suspension bridge, still open to traffic built 1820 making it the longest serving in the world. The farm is well worth a visit especially if you feel the need for tea and delicious cake. This is a working honey farm worth the trip alone to learn about honey bees and to sample (and buy) some. The cafe shop and honey experience are just the beginning there are some wonderful vintage vehicles both garaged and spread about the farm
including a couple of double decker buses, the green one is actually well converted into the cafe with plenty of seating up & down although if the sun is shining you will want to sit outside amongst the birds! There is much more to do than expected so we will be back!

I recently went with a large family party, wasn't very impressed, the children's play area were a few old looking ride on toys in a roped off area. The only friendly member of staff was a young lady in the antique shop, which is worth popping into! The worst part was the honey shop with a very horrible old lady running it who grabbed my 2 year old sons arm hard and literally snatched a plastic tasting spoon out of his hand muttering something to herself leaving my son and I astonished and rather upset.
It's free for a reason if you have younger children I really wouldn't bother, will not be recommending!

My expectations were low, but inclement forecast pushed my wife, small dog and I indoors ish. An odd collection of stuff, some interesting and some you could probably find at the back of your garage. No bees in sight, factory out of bounds, and previously mentioned grumpy old lady in residence in dusty museum, where she and similarly grumpy customer where engaged in a very amusing battle over the matter of a receipt and some small change. However on the up and up brought some very tasty comb honey. Go with low expectations and a keen sense of humour.

Barged past my husband then when my son asked if he could try sample honey he was told it was only for paying customers! We would have been paying customers if it wasn't for this woman's rudeness! Would not return! Disappointed

We popped in here on a recent visit to Berwick because it sounded quaint and fun for kids but we were quite disappointed, although the place was overall quite nice in a darling buds of may kind of way, the play area for kids was just full of broken, dirty toys that looked like they had been bought in the local jumble sale, the 'gift shop' was more like a dusty old museum with a grumpy old woman serving who didn't bother to say hello when we walked in and who seemed quite annoyed when she had to serve us as she was in the middle of sticking labels onto jars, my daughter did love watching the bee hive though and the info on the walls is informative, I cant comment on the café as we didn't hang around long enough to eat there but the honey however was outstanding and well worth trying but as we found out later you can buy it in other gift shops in the area so I wouldn't go out of my way to come here for it, it might be a nice place to visit for a cuppa if your local but its not much of a tourist attraction especially if you have kids.

Its great to walk across the chain bridge into Scotland and there are some lovely walks along the river. The honey farm is really interesting and has lots of old vehicles as well as the Bees.
