Rooted in family history and generations of farming, Longparke was developed after Jim and Fiona Thompson travelled for miles in search of the perfect spot for a tasty lunch or decent coffee and cakes. In 2014, the Thompsons took the decision to diversify the farm into hospitality, after realising that they could create their dream cafe on their very own doorstep.
Their son, James Thompson and wife Gemma took over the business, with the support of sister Abby, to ensure their parent’s vision was brought to life. With a lot of hard work and determination, the family proudly opened Longparke Farm Shop & Cafe on 30th April 2018, just a week before the birth of James and Gemma’s daughter Phillipa.
HISTORY OF NORTH GRANGE FARM
Looking to the future, James and wife Gemma have exciting plans for Longparke Farm and together they plan to continue the Thompson family legacy for generations to come.
Based in Arbroath, Fleming Butchers was established in 1925. With an excellent reputation as one of the finest meat producers in the North East of Scotland, the butchery business has supplied Longparke Farm with meat since opening in 2018.
After facing potential closure in 2022, Longparke Farm owner, James Thompson decided to buy Fleming Butchers as he wanted to continue to use the best locally sourced meat at Longparke Farm.
With unbelievable support from the local community, Fleming Butchers has been able to continue trading, supplying Longparke Farm and other local businesses with top-quality produce, and has branched out to provide an online butchery service.
