Your fellow farmers

Kelp Crofting – Skye and Lochalsh

Founded by Martin, Kyla and Alex, Kelp Crofting is establishing a seaweed farm in the Skye and Lochalsh area to grow kelp for various markets.

Their common passion for the ocean and to create sustainable, local products has lead the team of fishers, scientists and architects to embark on the journey to establish their first seaweed farm.

KelpCrofting is currently consulting the public about their envisioned farm. With the stakeholder consultation finished, Kelp Crofting plans to have their seaweed farm established in fall 2021.
