The BOG Directory

These business are still open for business during the lockdown

During the Covid-19 crisis, here at BOG we will keep you up to date with small businesses in the Borders and North Northumberland who are still getting their products and produce out to their customers. Many of these businesses are regular stallholders at the BOG Potato Day and we see this directory as one way of maintaining our relationship with them.

If you know of any other businesses we should be featuring here drop us an email or get in touch via our Contact page.

We can post out across the UK but we run a free delivery to the Kelso area once a fortnight.
You can order via our website – or by calling Sam on 07757 286 357 or searching for us on social media.


Heatherslaw Mill

Heatherslaw is very much open for business, and almost overrun but it is good to be supplying so many locals. The Mill is open Monday to Saturday 9 – 3. Customers can buy from us direct, better to phone on 01890 820488 and we can make the order so it is ready for collection. Cash only into a bucket to avoid contact and strict rules in place in the mill.
We are also now supplying Country Kitchen Deli in Melrose and Kelso Wholefoods, as well as the usual places like Cornhill Village Shop, Lowick Shop, Green Shop Berwick, and the Chatton shop. We sent an order to the Yetholm shop only last week,
We have also established two buying groups: anyone can set one up. They take orders and send through on behalf of a rural community (so far Branxton and area and also the Whittingham/Powburn/Callaly area.) We then get the flour to them or they collect the order as a one, so fewer people in the mill and fewer road miles. Just need to get in touch.


The Green Shop, Berwick

The Green Shop is open personal callers only: 9-4 Monday to Saturday. A single shopper in shop at one time please so best you know what you want.
Most things are in stock apart from flour & yeast, although Heatherslaw Stoneground wholemeal was available.
Card payments preferred as their banking relies on the Post Office in Berwick which is currently only open two days a week, 10-1pm.
