Our History

Welcome to FIFE COUNTRY. We are a Scottish-owned and family-run business, with a design and manufacturing heritage stretching back to 1888, and still based in our original location in Strathmiglo, Fife.

Ever since our founder, Andrew T Hogg, launched his original 'Boots by Post' service in 1888, with a small range of FIFE boots handmade by himself, we have been serving people who live and work in the country, originally with the famous FIFE farm boots, and evolving over time into a comprehensive range of country clothing and footwear, now appreciated by all country professionals and enthusiasts.

As the oldest mail order company still operating in Scotland (and still in family ownership), we retain our commitment to our founding principles of providing fine quality, fit-for-purpose, clothing and footwear, representing great value. These principles have enabled our products to become Scotland's finest collection of clothing and footwear for country professionals and country enthusiasts alike, making our products a way of country life.

Our collection has now been extended to include other leading country and leisure brands, such as Pinewood, Harkila, Jack Wolfskin, Joules,Seeland, Mephisto, Timberland and Gurteen.
