We design and operate quality improvement initiatives with both manufacturers and retailers. Teams operate independently of the client to identify problem areas and where necessary direct specific guidance. The objectives of the schemes are to improve food quality standards within all areas of production and retailing.
The Food Standards Agency is about the entire food industry – from agriculture, food production and consumption, to retail and catering. It looks into food safety issues at all stages of the process, offering information and guidance on the top practices and legal requirements. Eating healthy food is vital to your wellbeing.
Local preventable health problems are linked to diet and exercise. We have run a fitness programme from 2011. This involves walking and aerobic growing activities so you can improve your healthy food knowledge.
Our landlords have several miles of footpaths through woodlands and meadows, perfect for a healthy walk to get fit or wildlife trail. They also have chickens, alpacas & highland cattle. If you are recovering from a mental health issue please consider us. Getting outdoors and working with plants has been shown to help. You can join our friendly, non-threatening, non-judgemental workplace.
Whether you want to experience a workplace or learn about food health or growing from 2010 we can help with classroom and “on the plot” training.

Our training is either informal or accredited AQA Unit Awards. Qualifications are low cost or free to local residents, volunteering over 30 hours.
