Milton of Mathers farm hosts the Strategic Potato (SPot) Farm Scotland, extending the programme up to Montrose. The business spans 80 hectares of seed potatoes, with the rest of the arable land dedicated to barley and oilseed rape.
With medium soil types, the potato crops are grown on a combination of owned and rented land aiming for a seven to eight-year rotation.
Milton of Mathers is one of the main seed suppliers to McCains, having had a contract with the company since 1986 when the company first came to Scotland.+
