Knockfarrel Produce is run by Jo Hunt and Lorna Walker - our sons Finlay and Angus, are getting to that useful age, and help out too. But we couldn't do without our volunteers - some local and others international. Thanks to you all!
Jo would like to see the end of capitalism, but until then, he's doing his bit to look after a small bit of the world and revive the local food economy.
Former economist turned farmer, he's a bit of a foodie and creates all our recipes. Jo's spent many years on food campaigning and small producer cooperation, and enjoys sharing his knowledge with others.
Lorna never expected to become a crofter, even though she has roots in Caithness and Benbecula. She splits her time between being a professional environmentalist and working on the croft.
She takes the lead on the farm animals, and has a particular interest in reducing the environmental impact of how we produce and market our food.
Every Wednesday is volunteer day on the croft. If you would like to join in, please send us an e-mail.
We also offer residential internships for aspiring food producers from any part of the world. Jo is a mentor on the New Farmer Programme, run by Nourish Scotland.
