Stuart Reid thinks Hamilton Brothers are the Top Cheddar!March 5, 2018
Stuart Reid of Clauchlands has got Arran visitors in a cheese frenzy with produce from his dairy farm. Based in Lamlash on a hill overlooking the Holy Isle, Stuart and his staff produce high quality milk for the local Torrylinn Creamery.
Clauchlands Family Farm has been in business since 1968. Today Stuart leads a herd of over 200 dairy cows, 100 followers and 200 beef stock and has received praise for his produce, which has helped the creamery win several awards.
Clauchlands is run just like any other dairy farm. “Apart from the strip of water that separates us, there is little difference between farming on an island and the mainland- it’s still the same job,” says Stuart.
However, island farming can be tough and the Reid’s have learned to prepare for all eventualities. Stuart acknowledges, “Forward planning is important as you’re dependent on parts being delivered by boat. Weather can dictate when you receive stock. That’s why we plan our feeding three weeks in advance.”
We can count on Hamilton Brothers to help us in an emergency!
Stuart Reid and his family rely on Hamilton Brothers to help tackle the challenges of remote farming. “We have been dealing with Hamilton Brothers for over 30 years. They’ve always offered a reliable service. We can count on them to help us in an emergency.”
Stuart also looks to Area Sales Manager, Campbell Holmes for help when choosing the right machinery, which includes JCB Telehandlers, Massey Ferguson Tractors, and various other items of machinery and equipment!
For daily tasks, Stuart and his team use their JCB TM310S Telehandler, “The JCB Telehandler helps save us a significant amount of time,” Stuart quips, “We’ve been fans of JCB for a while and have upgraded from the TM200 to TM300-52 and, most recently, TM 310S. Previously, we were using a simple loader tractor to stack bales and it took double the time.”
Thanks to the reliability of their machinery, the milk runs smoothly at Clauchlands so we can continue to enjoy the hand crafted Arran Dunlop cheese at the Torrylinn Creamery!
