John Holmes assisted by providing his existing buildings and land from which the company could operate, as well as providing his knowledge of the practical farming with the use of  a wide range of farm machinery.

 

In 1980 Anne, Chris’s wife, joined the business to control the administration side.  Anne having obtained a degree at Edinburgh University, had gained her business administration skills through her work at  Ford Motor Company.
