They say that wilful waste makes for woeful want. If there is one place where this warning is heeded it is Presley farms in Wardford. Colin Presley and his wife Anne have nothing but a desire to make the most out of their 590ac tenant farm near Methlick in Aberdeenshire.

The Presleys run a mixed enterprise that consists of 950 English Mule ewes, 290ac of cereals and the contract fattening of 500 pigs a year. Colin is the third generation of the family to farm at Wardford and he aims to run a simple system that makes the most out of his time and assets.
