Is Local Dairy possible in the highlands?

In our latest podcast we talk to Nick Mackenzie at the Black Isle Dairy and Sam Harrison from the Shieling Project to find out if a local dairy solution is possible in the Highlands.


What are micro dairies? How do you sell direct to customers? How has COVID changed their businesses? And what benefits and challenges do they experience, stepping away from the supermarket dairy industry?

New Community Food Resources

After making our 'What's Your Food Story' podcast episode, we have pulled together lots of community food resources on our website. How to start a community fridge, what local community food groups are there? And lots more!

How do we get more local, sustainable food on local dinner plates?


This is the question the Highland Good Food Conversation plans to explore, and then inspire the necessary action.  You are invited to join the conversation and be part of the movement.  Over the last few months we have all witnessed how precarious our food system is, and how during this crisis, it was our local food producers and retailers who passionately rose to the challenge of getting food to us all.  Because of this, there is now a lot of momentum and energy in the local food sector, and many are keen to see a food system that is better for the planet, better for people and better for producers.

To build on this enthusiasm and awareness The Pebble Trust and Transition Black Isle have jointly funded the Highland Good Food Conversation.  This initiative aims to bring people together from across the Highlands who are interested in sustainable local food; to develop a vision for the Highlands and identify key actions to take forward.  The main purpose of the Conversation is to inspire people and facilitate real action to change our food system for the better.
