I first came to Turriefield in Sandness in 1995 and fell in love with the croft and Shetland. We moved here in 2008. My Shetland born partner (Alan) and I have been 'growing our own' and eating seasonally since 1999 and we would like as many people here in Shetland as possible to be able to do the same. We believe you should be able to choose food that has spent as little time, and travelled as little distance as possible, between harvest and plate; to eat food which is free from pesticides and agrochemicals and have an alternative to buying from supermarkets. We spend most of our time working to make this happen!
