About us


Jayson Byles

Before coming to the East Neuk 3 years ago to lead and manage a team of Professional Seaweed Harvesters, Jayson collaborated with various community groups in Glasgow where he worked with all ages and abilities focusing on healthy eating, food growing and outdoor experiences.

In the past he travelled as a Chef for 11 years and spent most summers of his youth working in apple orchards.

Jayson is a keen gardener and student of permaculture. He can most often be found having a cup of tea in all weather somewhere in the great outdoors.

the ethos

Sustainability is at the heart of East Neuk Seaweed which encompasses respect for our natural resources and an awareness of the legacy we leave for future generations.

what we do

We aim to excite, educate and empower people to reduce environmental impact by eating wild, locally produced and seasonal food, through tours and thoughtfully sourced produce.

We integrate with local food, conservation and community projects, highlighting the positive links and interconnection between our wellbeing and planetary health.
