About Us...

We are a family run contracting business covering Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. Established in 1955, we provide an extensive range of services to meet the needs of our customers from single operations through to full farm contracts. Our modern machinery and equipment offers the latest in precision technology including yield mapping and variable rate fertiliser spreading & seed drilling.

As members of the National Association of Agricultural Contractors, and with over 50 years experience in the industry, we provide a knowledgeable and professional service. Our operated plant hire machinery is available for a variety of works including drainage & ditching, ground works and farm road refurbishments.

We are TASCC assured bulk haulage contractors and lead grain from combines to stores, and from stores to export terminals and blending mills. We also have low loaders for transporting machinery.

More Information...

We have a wide range of cultivation and seedbed preparation systems to suit all types of soils and customers preference including ploughing, both on land and in furrow, deep subsoiling, flatlifting, power harrowing, pressing and min-till.

Equipment available for seed bed preparation includes Vaderstad Rexius Twin press, Simba Uni-press, and Simba X-press.

We have two Vaderstad Rapid drills, an 8metre pulled by a tracked CAT Challenger and a 4metre pulled by a Fendt 722.

We also have four power harrow/drill combination units, two 4metre folding Lemken Solitaire with disc coulters and two 3metre Kuhn with Suffolk coulters.

Precision Fertiliser Spreading
We run KRM weighcell fertiliser spreaders which are controlled via the GPS system and have auto-start and shutoff therefore saving on fertiliser overlaps. These spreaders are also capable of variable rate spreading and are compatible with most precision farming systems.

We run three Lexion combines, all fitted with Terra-Trac and 4 wheel drive, and vario headers, with twin vertical knives for direct cutting oil seed rape. All have yield mapping fitted which provides customers with a printed map of fields and yield. Tractors and trailers used for leading grain from the combines are fitted with low ground pressure tyres to reduce compaction in the fields.

Plant Hire
We have a plant hire and engineering division of the business which caters for all sizes of projects. Our work varies from drainage work, lake excavations, new road and pathway installation to full groundwork projects.
