A. Our organic seaweed is grown in the North Atlantic in the Western Isles of Scotland and is processed locally on North Uist.
The seaweed is harvested by hand, in a traditional manner. Skilled Harvesters, work at low tide and lay out a circle of rope over the area of seaweed they are going to cut. Cutting inside this circle, a seaweed stem of 300mm is left to establish a quick regrowth, thus maintaining an ecological balance.
When the tide returns, the cut seaweed floats. The rope is gathered and the seaweed is towed to the shore by a small boat. The seaweed is the gently dried using a unique low heat drying system that preserves the seaweed.
Seaweed is a great source of minerals that might be lacking in pasture and concentrates. To find out more and to buy online, click here.
