FARMLAND
The farmland within Lot 1 comprises approximately 305.00 Ha (753.66 Acres) and is classified as predominantly Grade 3.1 and 3.2 by the James Hutton Institute indicating the land is capable of producing consistently high yields of an excellent range of crops including cereals and seed potatoes, in addition to other summer harvested brassicas which are grown on the holding.

The arable land can be worked to a good depth and regular soil and lime tests have been carried out. A continuous programme of ditching and drainage works, it is farmed to its maximum potential and is relatively free draining allowing for both establishment and harvest to be successful completed at the extreme ends of the season.

The fields are well laid out and of a generous size,
easily accommodating modern machinery, and are readily accessible directly off the main public road or via an excellent network of internal tracks.

The farming policy has been to split the land between arable and vegetable production, with barley, wheat, oats, seed potatoes, and broccoli having all been grown in addition to grassland rotation.

The arable enterprise has been based on the crops mentioned whilst various vegetables have been grown through East of Scotland Growers Group.
