Laying some groundwork at Doughies these past few days.
Groundwork no one has been laying the bakehouse floor- nearly there now, just needs some grout and sealer, and then we can start putting the fun stuff back in on our new quarry tile floor.
The second piece of groundwork has been outside on the croft- we got some guidance on the art of ploughing and a lend of a tractor from a neighbour for a few days, and we’ve been busy ploughing up our in bye for potatoes and oats. The oats is the start of journey to rediscover what grains we can grow here in Lochaber, and how we could integrate those into some nutritious multi-grain sourdoughs.
The third and final piece of groundwork is news that Doughies will be having a stall at Made in Lochaber‘s local food trade fair being held Thursday 19th May – 11am to 3pm – Ben Nevis Distillery, Fort William, which is all about Getting local produce onto Lochaber plates! We’re looking forward to meeting some local businesses looking to book some weekly bread crates for their shops/restaurants, starting (wait for it) in June (!)…..more to follow….
