Organic Food Production

In 1994 a Community Supported Agriculture scheme called EarthShare, based on organic and biodynamic farming methods, was established to increase our use of local produce as well as to enhance the quality of our food. The scheme has expanded from 5 to 25 acres, including cooperating with Cullerne Garden, the Findhorn Foundation's market garden. It is spread over three sites, and currently provides much of the community's temperate vegetables requirements as well as supplying 140 individual households. EarthShare joins in efforts to raise public awareness of the dangers of GM foods.

Organic cheese, eggs and meat are produced for the community and bioregional consumers by Wester Lawrenceton farm which occupies a 95-acre area overlooking Findhorn bay and the Moray firth. With cows, sheep, chickens and dairy facilities, the farm is providing solutions to reducing food miles, while combining the best of traditional methods with 21st century technology.
