Countryfile "Blairgowrie" 31 July 2022: Sunday on BBC Two 11

John Craven and Margherita Taylor are in Blairgowrie, also known as Berry Town, in the east of Scotland, to celebrate the town’s passion for producing what are said to be among the finest raspberries in the world.

John steps back in time to discover how this town would come alive in the summer months as people flocked from the cities of Scotland for picking holidays to make a penny or two, and he finds out why this neck of the woods is so perfect for growing these luscious summer fruits. Margherita reveals the secrets of the world’s tallest hedge and tries her hand at the dying craft of hand-making kilts.

Adam Henson has a busy day on the farm, including welcoming some new arrivals. And Charlotte Smith investigates if our farmers can still feed us all despite big targets to free up land for nature.
