Crofters have started a campaign to introduce a brand for their agricultural produce.
Consumers would be able to trace products back to the croft
The Scottish Crofting Foundation said it hoped to cultivate crofting's reputation for "natural and healthy produce".
It has also begun investigating if more jobs could be created by processing the raw produce closer to its source.
The foundation's Becky Shaw said consumers would be able to trace products back to their source.
She said: "The things we are looking at through the crofting brand are just making use of the environment that crofters work in - it is a fantastic place and fantastic landscape.
"Products we would be aiming to sell through the brand would be completely traceable so one would know exactly where your food came from, exactly who it was produced by.
"That has got to be a strong selling point."
