We were staying next door at the campsite, so popped in. What a fun enterprise! They basically have hundreds of apiaries in the area and make all sorts of honey and honey-based products there.
But that's only the start as there are loads of vintage vehicles in various states of (dis)repair, with everything from a Vickers crawler tractor (?) to a threshing machine, several double deckers, an earth mover and everything in between.
Other eclectic attractions are an antiques curios shop-front, a collection of wartime and other old things, and a museum with a brief history of honey.
If I was honest I think everything for sale is EXPENSIVE, from the honeys to the antiques, so take a fat wallet if you're in a spending mood.
Fun, but could be a little more engaging, if they made the shopping experience a bit more attractive, otherwise you just feel like you're taking a look at someone's eclectic obsessions.

Spent a very pleasant afternoon here, after having a good lunch in the Double decker Cafe. Old vehicles and honey farm very interesting. Went home by going over Chain Bridge.

This really is an excellent place to visit and a perfect place to have some lunch - especially when the weather is nice.

The honey farm itself is nice to look around - they have some nice produce in the shop and some good displays. There are some nice vintage vehicles to look at outside.

The bus cafe is excellent - the food really is very good indeed - some excellent sandwiches, coffee and cakes and the staff are fantastic.

The farm is located right next to the chain bridge on the banks of the Tweed - and it's a beautiful place to have a walk around - it's an easy walk up to the nearby Paxton House.

Quirky little place, couldn't spend a whole day there but would recommend lunch on the double decker bus cafe :)
