Focus on locally-produced food

Transition Black Isle and 'Fife Diet' founder Mike Small brought a Local Larder food event to Cromarty yesterday with stalls selling locally-produced food and crafts and a talk on the crisis in our globalised food system.

The Highland Food Challenge, the local eating plan run by Transition Black Isle, is inspired by the Fife Diet which commits families to buying food produced within the local area. Highland Food Challenge coordinator Freya Manson said, "Mike was very inspiring, engaging and informative… I felt the whole event showed that we do care about where our food comes from on the Black Isle and highlighted just how many opportunities there are for us to eat great food produced locally."
