This Valentines Day dont bother with nasty petrol station flowers or the usual boring chocolates – be daring, be different – SAY IT WITH FUDGE
Our beautiful gift box of handcrafted fudge can be delivered to your loved one for you without breaking the bank. To make the box a really special treat to open we’ll add in metallic red heart confetti to spill out, and as an optional extra we can pop in a Valentine card – either left blank or with a personal message to your loved one.
Our luxury handcrafted fudge is made to the highest standards and sure to put a smile on the recipients face.
Each Special Gift box will contain 4 bars of Fudge – net weight of 100grms per bar (but we tend to be heavy handed when we cut the bars as everything is done by hand)
The 4 flavours will be
Vanilla and Cranberry
Raspberry and White Chocolate
Please select whether you want the Gift box with or without a card
Let us know your personal message if there is one
Let us know whether to deliver it to you, (so you can hand it over in person) or if you want to be super romantic and have it delivered directly to your Valentine
Please note – our Rocky Road fudge is fully loaded, so as well as the biscuit and fluffy marshmallows also contains nuts. If your Valentine has a nut allergy just add a note at checkout and we’ll swap it out for an alternative nut free flavour.
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 !
