The Scottish Crofting Federation is the only organisation lobbying exclusively for the interests of crofters and small producers. Your membership fee is a vital part of the funding that allows us to do this.
With our collective action, support for crofting and remote rural communities gains a higher profile. Thanks to our members the SCF gives Crofting a strong political representation, benefiting crofters now as well as future generations: we are directly involved in shaping policies and enhanced schemes specific to crofting such as the Croft House Grant Scheme, Bull Hire Scheme and Crofting Agricultural Grants Scheme; and the beneficial parts of the Crofting Reform Bill have been retained while the many negative aspects have been removed.

For all this and more the annual subscription is only £66.50 per individual, £99.75 for joint membership (two residing at the same address), or if you are aged 40 years or under, membership is £33.25.
