From 2008, we will offer support for woodland creation through Rural Development Contracts. In the meantime, we are inviting ‘initial interest’ for woodland creation specifically for the 2007/08 planting season.


Crofting Brand Set for Autumn Launch

Wednesday, July 25, 2007

Following a survey of Scottish Crofting Foundation (SCF) members which produced a positive and enthusiastic response, a brand for crofting produce is on track to be launched in the autumn in time for the main sales season for croft-produced lamb, beef and potatoes. The Crofting Brand Working Group met last week in Inverness to review the results of the survey and agreed that, given such an encouraging response, the brand should be launched without delay.


Crofting Brand Questionnaire

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

You may have heard of our project to create a "brand" for crofting produce. The first meeting of the working group is reported in this issue of the Crofter. We would very much appreciate it if you could find time to complete this short questionnaire to enable us to gauge the opinions of our members. The information you supply will be totally confidential and will be collated and included in a report to our working group and funders. Please give as much information as possible and use a separate sheet if necessary.
