We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
Our market garden was established in 2018/19 on the edge of mature woodland in Hatton of Fintray. Concerned about the falling standards of food and the damage to the planet and people's health we wanted to do things differently. We run on the principles that soil is valuable and all growing methods should reflect this. Natural resistance to pests and disease is achieved through creating biodiversity within our ecosystems and not using any chemical applications. We keep our food production footprint low by generating power through our off grid solar panels, managing our water sensibly and freshly harvesting veg for local distribution. This year we have added rare breed forest raised pigs to our landscape to continue regenerating the soil and providing health and diversity to the land.
We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.
Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
