Fudge favours are becoming really popular, but if you’re trying to arrange an amazing wedding on a budget can be pricey.
We can help make the best affordable by making our fabulous fudge available to buy in bulk to cut up and bag yourself – you decide how much goes in each bag, so you’re in control of the costs. And as we dont have to stand and do the work we can keep the costs right down for you.
Our finest handcrafted fudges are now available in 2 kilo slabs You pick the flavour to fit in with your wedding theme and or colour scheme then just cut it up and bag or box it yourselves.
All our fudge is handcrafted in our croft kitchen in the Scottish Highlands.
We use only the finest ingredients and natural flavourings and colourings.
We already have a huge selection of flavours ranging from a simple Vanilla, traditional Scottish Tablet and the every popular whisky to the more exotic (Irn Bru, Turkish Delight and even Red Bull). We also make a selection of alcoholic fudges from Rum and Raisin or Baileys to Pina Colada – try us we might have exactly what you want and if it’s not in our range already we might be able to make it anyway.

The Crafty Crofter is a small family run business based just outside Bonar Bridge in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. The Murrays moved to a 78 acre croft in Sutherland back in 2003. The plan was to rear animals, grow food and become a cross between The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie. Initially to fund the dream Gordon worked off-shore in Industrial Rope Access. Following a “near miss” accident his back got progressively more sore, but with the help of osteopaths and chiropractors he kept going for a few years. Over time (and after adding a couple of kids and several dogs to the family) we got the devastating news that Gordon had broken his back in an industrial accident and not only would he not get better and be able to carry on with the grand plans, but would in fact get worse over time. He suffers from chronic pain and has huge mobility issues. Sitting in a car for any length of time causes pain induced blackouts and on a bad day he cant stand up, so a “normal” job is out of the question. As he deteriorated we reluctantly sold off all our live stock (we loved those Highland cows and wild boar) and looked for alternative ways to use our resources. One Christmas in an effort to get lovely presents for those dearest to us (without spending much money) Gordon made some lovely things from wood. Everybody seemed delighted with their handmade gifts, so he got the confidence to experiment and try some more ideas out. Friends started asking him to make things for them, which led us to start up a Facebook page. One thing led to another and as the orders started to come in we converted an old steading building into a workshop (his Emporium) and invested in some big boys toys to make the work easier. No computers, no automated processes – everything done by hand. Now he works as and when he feels able – even when that means it’s 3 in the morning when his machines are running.
The next step was to start attending local craft fayres. Although Gordon can’t make the day trips to attend, Julie his wife and the kids Daniel and Pixie are happy to pitch in and man the stall. It’s a great way to get instant feedback on our new ranges and to pick up ideas of what people would like to see added to our selection. Originally all our core range of products were made from wood. We have lots of our own home grown sustainable trees (and a chainsaw and our own sawmill). Sometimes we buy in tropical hard woods to make things extra special. We’ve invested in a workshop full of big boys toys, from planers, thicknessers, band saws, bench saws, table saws, scroll saws, every type of sander imaginable …. and our new addition – a wood turning lathe. We do most of our makes to order – everything from trinket boxes, key rings, fairy houses and memorial urns for pets and pyrography. If it’s made form wood, we can do it.
Recently as Gordons condition has deteriorated we’ve been diversifying – adding to our brand with ranges of home made jam and now our own hand crafted fudge. While Gordon and Daniel are busy in the woodwork shop, Julie and Pixie make sure the kitchen always smells divine, concocting new flavours and perfecting new recipes. The Fudge side of the business is really taking off for us and looks like it will soon be able to replace the wood makes. Its an exciting time as we learn and grow … although constant access to the fudge kettle is not good for our waistlines !
