The Orchard occupies a prominent and central position on the High Street in the South Lanarkshire town of Biggar.

Biggar is situated in the Southern Uplands, on the main A702 routing and not far from the nearby towns of Lanark, Peebles and Carnwath. Scotland’s capital Edinburgh and Scotland’s largest city Glasgow are both reachable comfortably within a one hour drive to the north east and north west respectively.

Its location to these two main cities has encouraged substantial residential development for commuters over the years whilst the town centre has remained relatively unchanged still having the feel of a traditional market town.

The town hosts a varied selection of award-winning, independently owned businesses with a wide selection of restaurants, boutique shops and accommodation for visitors.

Our clients have owned and operated ‘The Orchard’ since 2007 when they purchased a basic greengrocers business that had been trading from this location for many years. Since then they have diligently adapted the business to cater for the inhabitants of Biggar offering a wide and varied range of products that they know are required and where possible they buy from small, local independent producers.

Whilst retaining the greengrocers and fresh fish counter, the business now has a real delicatessen feel with a wonderful selection of meats, cheese, oils, juices and everything else you can think of along with the seafood and fresh fruit and vegetables on offer.

The owners themselves produce a range of hampers, cheeseboards and gifts, many containing their award winning home baking, sweet treats, oatcakes and preserves. This is done from another property and they would be happy to continue supplying these products to the business should the new owner wish.

There is currently an option for customers to place advance orders by email or phone for collection or delivery. The additional property at the rear of the shop is ideal for this as well as the storage available there.

Having spent the last 15 years offering high quality products and exceptional customer service the owners have decided it is time to pass the business onto a new owner and allow themselves the opportunity of more flexibility with their time in other parts of the business and for their family commitments.

Overall, The Orchard is a very well run and profitable business located in a prominent position in the beautiful town of Biggar.

Ideally suited to a hands-on operator who can continue the excellent work of the current owners whilst adding their own fresh ideas.
