Mains of Leask is helping to rebuild local food economies

We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

About Mains of Leask

Here at Mains of Leask we grow a wide range of vegetable which vary by the season.

At the start of the season, from late July to late September, salad crops and brassicas dominate. Lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, peas, spinach, chard, beetroot, cauliflower and broccoli, amongst others.

From September onwards we see a lot more root crops available. Swedes, carrots and parsnips as well as cabbage, brussel sprouts and leeks to name a few!

The benefits of buying local

Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
