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.ce.


Get to know us

Welcome to Transition Turriefield, we grow all sorts of fruit and vegetables. You will find us in Sandness, a small community on the very edge of the far west mainland of Shetland.

Grow Shetland

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.

Growing your own is the best way to have fresh local food. We love to share the knowledge we’ve gained about growing in Shetland. We run training courses and workshops all over Shetland and can give support and advice to get you growing too.

what our customers say
