Is there any feeling quite like seeing the gates open on day one of the Royal Highland Show?
As a visitor, you have so many trade stands, businesses and people you want to see and hear from. There are never enough hours in the day to get round all the attractions.
This episode of OnFARM seeks to replicate that busy day. It’s packed full of voices, including some very well known names in Scottish agriculture. We were keen to speak with as many businesses as possible, from machinery sales to estate agency to gin, vodka, seeds and banking. OnFARM’s Ross Montague hears Highland Show stories from rural Scotland’s business community and asks how traders are coping during Covid-19 lockdown. There is also exciting news of a ‘virtual’ Scottish agricultural show taking place later in the summer.
‘Taking Care of Business’ is episode 4 in our OnFARM series in association with the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland. Taking part are Royal Bank of Scotland, Watsons Seeds, Dales Agricultural Services, Galbraiths Property Consultancy, Ogilvy Spirits, The Gin Bothy, Macbeths Butchers, and Countryside Refreshments. We also hear from Nuffield Scholar Aled Rhys Jones.
