A farm shop has opened to showcase Isle produce at Westwoodside, with the hope of creating new jobs in the near future.

The Croftbank Farm venture is the brainchild of Isle farmer Gerrad Farmer and his fiance Verita.

Along with their own meats within a range of beef, pork, lamb, venison and game, they will sell locally-made pies, desserts and a wide range of fruit and vegetables.

Mr Farmer said: “We hope to provide an outlet that’s unique, and could expand further once we have become established.

“There will be work vacancies created as time goes on.”
