A micro-smallholding in the Highlands

We are passionate about vegetables and teaching folks how to grow their own. We share our produce, plants and knowledge!

Highland Seedlings is a micro-smallholding in the Highlands of Scotland. Located on the east coast about an hour north of Inverness, it comprises a vegetable plant nursery, a kitchen garden, an orchard and fruit patches, and free-ranging ducks and chickens. It is also home to the Fearn Free Food Garden, our little community space where we grow free food and plants for our local community.

During 2019 we held regular workshops where we taught folks how to grow veg without digging, and in harmony with nature. We also sold veg plants, and did so for much of 2020. But we don’t want to run a business, so instead of selling plants we now exchange them for a small to donation to the Fearn Free Food Garden. Or free for locals! We hope to run courses again post-COVID.

During the summer of 2020, we ran a small free market stall in our driveway, every Saturday 11-2, to share our vegetables and plants with the local community. Thank you very much for your support, and we’ll see you next year!
