You’ll be specialising in innovative farming techniques like controlled traffic farming (CTF) and using our high tech kit like:
- potato harvesting with a Grimme 4 Row Tectron

We hope everyone is having a great bank holiday weekend and you're all ready for the premiere of our latest video. This is the first ever GRIMME GL 860 Compacta in the United Kingdom and what machine it is. This 8-row beast was planting up to 40 hectares a day with plating speeds of around 8-9kmph this spring. It's also surprisingly compact on the road and folds up to a transport width of just 3.35m. We just want say a big thank you to P.X. Farms and Farming Photography for making this video possible, we hope you all enjoy it.
