Everyone should be able to eat
fresh, healthy, seasonal fruit and vegetables
We’ve been ‘growing our own’ and eating seasonally since 1999 and we would like
as many people here in Shetland, to be able to do the same!
Here at Turriefield we are passionate about local food. We want as many folk as
possible in Shetland to be able to access healthy, fresh, chemical free produce.
Having a small carbon footprint for our produce is also important, so we use growing
methods that have as little negative environmental impact as possible.
Grow Shetland is our new 3 year project (2021-2024) supporting the Shetland community to grow more of its
own fruit and vegetables, increase access to affordable food and encourage healthy eating. It’s funded by
Shetland Islands Council’s Crown Estate Fund and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
what our customers say
As an Island community, we do find it difficult to buy fresh veg; the
vast majority of veg is imported and is days old before we get it. Here
is an answer, right on our doorstep – literally.”
