East Seaton Farm is a family business owned by Lochart and Debbie Porter. East Seaton was formed in 1991 as a soft fruit farm. Since then, production has expanded and continues to do so, as new systems and plant varieties are implemented to ensure continuous production of high quality fruit for 6 months of the year. The farm comprises 400 acres of grade 2 sandy silt loam soil, on which barley, potatoes, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries are grown. As a producer of the finest quality fruit, East Seaton supplies the major supermarkets in UK.

The farm is located in Arbroath on the East Coast of Scotland. Arbroath is in the county of Angus and is 17 miles (25km) east of Dundee. The farm is surrounded by Seaton Cliffs Nature Trail, beautiful red sandstone cliffs and the North Sea. Arbroath is a bustling seaside town which is still home to an active fishing industry, and there are many restaurants, pubs and shops on hand. The local delicacy, the Arbroath Smokie (traditionally smoked haddock), is not to be missed.
The town is dominated by Arbroath Abbey, where the famous Declaration of Arbroath (signifying Scotland’s independence from England) was signed in 1320. The Signal Tower Museum is well worth a visit, and there are also several operators who organise pleasure cruises or fishing trips out of Arbroath harbour
