More information

Corskie Farm, on the north east coast of Scotland, is run by Iain Green in partnership with his mother and father, and the family have been farming in the area for over 60 years.

In total Iain and his team farm 1,416 ha (809 of which is owned) with cereals, sheep, cattle and pigs. While the majority of their arable lands goes for spring barley for distilling (over 526 ha), they also grow winter barley, winter wheat and spring oats, much of which are used to feed the livestock.

Precision farming is likely to be a key component of the project in Morayshire with Iain keen to use it to help cut costs and increase yields. With over 688 ha devoted to cereals, Iain currently records and reviews as much data as he can on his crops, to help improve their performance.

With so much land to cover, Iain is hugely appreciative of his dedicated team of twelve full time employees, without whom Corskie Farm wouldn’t be able to operate. He is also assisted by his two daughters, Laura (20) and Jemma (16), who both plan to work on the farm full time in the future.

The Scottish Monitor Farms programme is being funded by £1.25million secured from the Scottish Government and European Union’s Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund. It is run jointly by Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and AHDB Cereals & Oilseeds.
