Supporting Farmers in Scotland Since 1893
Most farmers can claim to be handy men, such is the vast range of skills that you must be able to turn your hand to.
A sport loving friend of mine recently remarked that gardening and football had a lot in common.
Without doubt, most Scottish farmers have thought of ways to try to generate income outwith their mainstream agricultural activity.
It can be increasingly difficult to turn a good profit in farming and this has led many farmers to diversify.
NOT EVERYONE is lucky enough to have a job that they love, but there's no doubt that if you're truly passionate about something then you are more likely to be good at it.
