Our Story

 

All The Goodness is owned and run by husband and wife team, Mark & Lorraine. In 2008, inspired by a love for fresh, flavoursome home baking and great coffee, we bought a small mobile catering trailer with a dream to move to the Scottish Highlands. The following year we were offered a contract in a beautiful country park in Cheshire, and loved it so much we ended up staying for six years.

Our dream to move North was put on hold but mountains and sea were still calling to us. In 2010 we were married on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides.

In February 2014, we finally found the perfect premises - an empty shop overlooking Eilean Donan Castle. In October that year we packed our belongings and spent the following six months transforming the building into a fresh space with its own bakeshop kitchen and an area devoted to Scottish produce.

Over ten years later, now based in the Scottish Highlands, our mission is still the same and our values determine the way we operate.

our philosophy

    - Simple, natural ingredients

    - Everything made from scratch

    - Local, Scottish, organic, ethical and seasonal produce

    - Innovation and creativity in the kitchen

Our aim is for the shop to be a fun, welcoming space and a sanctuary of delicious goodies where new food memories are created. We believe in keeping things simple enough to enable an unwavering focus on quality and an attention to detail.

Experimentation and creativity are pivotal to what we produce and the way we operate. In 2016 we began planting a kitchen garden to grow some special ingredients. In addition to local and heritage fruit varieties we were eager to have a resource of unusual flavours. Over the last two years we have planted dozens of fruit-bearing trees and bushes. We also grow our own herbs and edible flowers from seed, and forage in the local area for wild, forgotten flavours.

By running the business in harmony with our most important values, the energy flows back into everything we do, allowing us to pay attention to the little details that really make a difference. This means we can meet our aim of a sustainable, creative and fulfilling business that brings joy to our customers.
