Find Your Local Food Producers Or Grow Your Own

“this food is often more nutritious and simply tastes better”

Do you really know where your food has come from?

Have you tried to find out if you can buy local? Many towns now have farmers markets or alternatives such as collection points so you can order from local producers. That way you know it is produced locally, likely not using intensive farming methods which tend towards monocropping, high use of pesticides and insecticides and crowding of animals with associated health problems.

With a bit of research you might even find people selling organic eggs and salad from their doorstep and producers who are using regenerative farming methods.

It can be a bit of an eye opener once you start exploring. Near Oban we have a regenerative farm on the island of Lismore which produces grass fed beef and lamb. We are lucky to have fish caught daily and landed at the pier in Oban, fresh milk from the Isle of Gigha as well as cheese from the Isle of Mull and of course our local whisky and gins.

As well as knowing you are looking after the environment this food is often more nutritious and simply tastes better!
