“The health of soil, plant, animal and man is one and indivisible.” Lady Eve Balfour.

Marcus has been involved in organic agriculture since 1975 whilst farming in East Anglia so it seemed only natural that when we came to Skye to a place that had never been anything but organic that we register the land with the Soil Association and become approved.

Marcus has also been involved in promoting organic growing elsewhere on the island and with 8 others has formed a group of growers, their produce is available from a market stall in Portree on Thursday mornings.

Much of the work in the garden is undertaken using not only organic principles but also biodynamic. The evidence is there for all to see and enjoy along with the wildlife it supports, and not a chemical in sight.
