Can you build foundations and slabs with field stones?

I was wanting renovate a small section of an old bank barn for a workshop, a small section of the old stone wall has crumbled,  would it be acceptable to rebuild the stone and mortar wall enveloped with insulation on both inside and outside, to reduce the use of concrete.  In the future I would like to try this technique for a new build house, if this is an accptable way to construct walls an possible floors ( stone and concrete) I have access to an abundant amount of field stone.

Thanks for any help.
