G and R. Fraser offers specific service contracting and contract farming operations across an area of approximately 1,400 hectares. Operated by George and Jonathan Fraser, the business employs nine full-time staff across a base of 150 customers.

Alongside traditional agricultural contracting, the business offers more specialist services, including digestate application from anaerobic digestion (AD) units and direct drilling.

The application of organic manures from AD plants led to business to invest in a Vervaet self-propelled tanker and application unit, which allows improved productivity and application accuracy. The growth of this service has aligned with a focus on the reduction of artificial fertiliser consumption and net-zero targets for some of the larger customers.

Reflecting this attention to improved environmental impacts, the business works with agronomy business Agrii to host no-tillage trials and open days to demonstrate their findings.
