A local farmer contractor has made the shortlist for a top prize in the UK’s biggest farming awards.

Sinclair Contractors, who farm at Kinknockie Farm in Udny, Ellon, have made it to the final three for the Contractor of the Year award in the 2018 Farmers Weekly Awards.

Magnus Sinclair’s contracting outfit caters for 150 customers across the north of Scotland.

A fastidious approach to record keeping means the business knows the exact cost of every service it provides and can run a close eye over new opportunities to diversify the business.

If Sinclair Contactors are lucky enough to win the Contactor of the Year title, they will be in the running for the overall Farmer of the Year award.

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony in London’s Grosvenor House on Thursday, October 4.
