We embrace organic and regenerative farming practices, cultivating a diverse range of therapeutic plants on our croft in Harris. By growing our plants organically, we minimise the use of harmful chemicals, ensuring that our ingredients are free from pollutants and safe for consumption.


We also practice responsible wild harvesting, taking care to preserve the natural habitat and biodiversity of our surroundings. Whether in our use of Sugar Kelp from the crystal-clear seas or Bogbean from local lochs, we consistently demonstrate our dedication to responsibly sourcing ingredients from our pristine environment.
