We have added 40% fruit, nuts and seeds to make our unique luxury “Beggars Mantle” mix. Why “Beggars Mantle”? Well, James VI of Scotland is said to have described Fife as a “Beggars Mantle fringed with gold…” The gold he referred to was the string of wealthy fishing villages on the coast, made rich through trade with the Low Countries and the “Beggars Mantle” referred to the impoverished interior. This is ironic given that today Fife is known for having some of Scotland’s richest and most productive agricultural land. This land yields excellent quality oats that help make up the heart of our luxury muesli.
The Kingdom of Fife is ideally placed to grow excellent quality oats. Situated between the Firth of Forth and the River Tay, where the long summer days are cooled by the proximity to these bodies of water, making for a long slow ripening season.
Our rolled oats make the perfect porridge and we would recommend the addition of some honey and cream or try it with some maple syrup and creme fraiche.
