Banff and Buchan Monitor Farm: Introductory Video
Sauchentree Farm, at New Aberdour, on the north-east coast of Scotland, is run by Bruce Irvine in partnership with his mother.
Help at lambing comes from his art-lecturer wife, sister and brother-in-law. Their two daughters are starting to get involved in the farm. In total,
Bruce farms 650ac with cereals, sheep and cattle and believes the three enterprises are as important as each other, with livestock providing fertility for the arable side. Bruce markets their lamb and beef through Scotbeef, ANM at the mart and Woodhead and enjoys competing with neighbouring farms on yield and lambing percentage.
Bruce has been focused on dynamic health planning so far; watch now to see what he hopes to achieve through the programme.
