0% footprint food
There are more potato patches appearing on crofts each year and a number of gardeners have started to grow food. Polytunnels are springing up. There are a few honesty boxes in the area, selling a variety of local food: eggs, jams, chutneys and sometimes baking and vegetables. Sometimes local croft meat and vegetables are offered for sale in the An Crubh shop.
It seems that more people are realising that growing your own food is very satisfying – it not only tastes tons better, but the food miles are nil.
We would be interested to hear from other crofting communities who are seeing a revival of interest in using crofts for subsistence food growing. Please use the ‘Contact Us’ page to get in touch.
