Welcome to Ormiston Grows.

Ormiston Grows is a social enterprise in the village of Ormiston in East Lothian.

Our business is promoting healthy eating, social inclusion and caring for the environment.

Since our establishment in 2011 as a company limited by guarantee we have attracted small amounts of funding from a variety of organisations to set up the community shop and cafe and the community market garden.

In March 2013 we were awarded funding for two years from the Climate Challenge Fund to address a range of environmental issues; promoting seasonal food and the reduction of food waste, encouraging communities to grow their own food, to shop locally and increase active travel within the village. 


We aim to generate income and become self sustaining by running a community shop and cafe on the main street and growing as much organic fruit and vegetables as we can to sell here.


All profits generated will be ploughed back into the project.





The Ormiston Grows Shop on the village Main Street sells a wide and growing range of:


  • Fruits & Vegetables
  • Bread, Bakery & Cakes
  • Groceries, including Jam, Honey & Dried Goods
  • Dairy, including Cheese, Butter, Cream & Milk
  • Snacks & Treats


Our products are locally sourced, organic or fairly traded.

Come in and take a look!
