Pedal to your Produce #1: Eassie Asparagus Farm

Members of Sustainable Kirriemuir took to their pedals on Saturday 5th June to cycle from Kirrie to Eassie. The cycle was part of an asparagus run to collect local produce from Sandy and Heather Patullo at Eassie Farm. The group cycle was arranged as part of a series of events across the UK for Bike Week 2021. It was led by Cycling UK run leader Patricia Harrow. Patricia is also part of the Active and Sustainable Travel Group in Kirrie. The group are planning more events like this over the coming months. Check out our film below to see what it was all about!

Collaboration is Key

We aim to collaborate in everything we do at Sustainable Kirrie and our Pedal to your Produce is just one example of that. The event linked the low carbon travel option of cycling to shopping locally and seasonally for the food we eat. Look out for more Pedal to your Produce events coming up throughout the season. We are aiming to have something for all ages and abilities.

Eassie Farm

Eassie Farm has been in the Pattullo family since the 1840s and for the past 30 years Sandy and Heather Pattullo have been growing asparagus and seakale. Their asparagus is highly prized by Scotland’s finest restaurants and local retailers.
