Welcome to Frugaldom

Frugaldom is a privately owned outdoor project based in Dumfries and Galloway region of southwest Scotland. We operate as a social enterprise to promote frugality, environmental awareness and sustainability. Our project is a combination of fruit and herb growing, planting new woodlands and foraging hedgerow, environmental art, nature conservation and local heritage. Learn about the history of the Galloway Ponies and, when in season, sample our Galloway Pippin heritage apples.

The concept of frugaldom is based on frugal living and the pursuit of debt freedom. Everything we do here is on a shoestring budget. We make do & mend, recycle, barter, grow fruit, vegetable and herbs and strive to find the most cost effective ways of doing things. This now includes looking after a small herd of ponies and a small flock of hens and ducks. Taking care of the environment is high on our agenda so we have se aside. We strive for self-sustainability.

Frugaldom small farm project - a microholding - is where we are:

  • Planting orchards, new woodlands and willow beds

  • Cultivating Bog Myrtle

  • Establishing 'edible' hedgerows for foraging

  • Growing herbs, berries and vegetables

  • Providing new wildlife habitats for nature conservation
