Our Off-Grid Home and Office on Loch Shiel
Once upon a time, 'Organic' meant Organic. No chemicals, no dodgy 'permissible ingredients' or Government game-playing, making it difficult to trade with our neighbours. Organic was good for you and good for the planet
Then, things became more complex. Organisations, control bodies & big businesses joined in, regulating and dictating the whole process - meaning farmers now needed to pay for an official stamp to prove their produce was Organic!
Going Beyond Organic
Having the right sticker on the label isn't always the best way to value food. We admire the growers willing to take a step back from the Organic mainstream and concentrate on simply doing what's best for the land & ecosystems they're responsible for
We have amazing Organic food and growers - but their organic stamp isn't always the primary reason we found each other. Old heirloom varieties, unpolluted remote regions and deeply harmonious farming practices are more important to us than being able to label everything with an official mark of approval
The land, people & heritage of a place best determines what grows where. Working in harmony with Nature means all the goodness of the land can support the crop sustainably for generations. Chemicals aren't needed when the soul of a place is honoured
