Good For Ewe - Welcome
We were a group of people in and around Inverasdale on the banks of Loch Ewe near Poolewe in Wester Ross, with an interest in growing and selling local food.
Our vision was to increase availability of affordable, locally grown, chemical free produce to the local community.
We leased land from a local crofter who is a member of the group. This land is divided up into a number of allotments - both outdoor and undercover in our Keder House polytunnels - that were avalable for rental by our members to grow their own produce.
We also hosted The Shieling project which provided growing opportunities to involve people who may not have been able to maintain a plot of their own.
One of the Keder Houses was allocated for communal growing of produce for sale at the local market. We also had a number of outdoor plots that are cultivated by members in an "adopt-a-plot" scheme to grow produce for sale by Good For Ewe.
Marketing and sale of the communally grown produce, excess from members' plots, and produce grown by members in their own gardens and crofts, was performed co-operatively.
We operated very succesfully for many years but now are looking to close the Company and relocate the Keder Houses to alternative local initiatives.
