Wood­side Ar­ran

The Arran Banner - - Features -

Wood­side Ar­ran is a not-for-profit so­cial en­ter­prise that is help­ing to build a di­verse lo­cal food net­work on the Isle of Ar­ran. At their beau­ti­ful farm in Kil­do­nan they are ap­ply­ing the lat­est in­no­va­tions in mar­ket gar­den­ing, re­gen­er­a­tive agri­cul­ture and per­ma­cul­ture. They grow fruit and veg­eta­bles in their mar­ket gar­den, rear rare-breed pork and pro­duce free-range eggs. In ad­di­tion to their own pro­duce, they source or­ganic and spe­cial­ity home­ware items that can be a lit­tle tricky to find on the is­land. Their plan is sim­ple: if it’s not grown here on Ar­ran then it must be or­ganic. They will be grow­ing as much as pos­si­ble them­selves and ex­pand­ing each year as well as pur­chas­ing from other is­land grow­ers. The rest will be the high­est qual­ity or­ganic pro­duce be­cause as hard as they have tried, they haven’t quite mas­tered grow­ing av­o­ca­dos in Scot­land yet. All Wood­side Ar­ran prod­ucts are de­liv­ered to your door or avail­able through their mo­bile shop - The Real Food Shop - which vis­its vil­lages around the is­land dur­ing the week - see in­set ad­vert for the sched­ule. New and ex­ist­ing cus­tomers can or­der via their on­line shop on http://bit.ly/ wood­sidear­ran­shop or get in touch via info@wood­sidear­ran.com
