Iain and Sheena Graham,

Owners Aird Farming Group

T: 07808 056 403      E: Iain@killochries.com

Iain and Sheena are based at Killochries Fold, west of Glasgow. They own Aird Farming Group, comprising Balgay, Killochries Fold, Drumcross Farm and Shieldaig Croft. Iain is always keen to hear from other farmers, sharing information and ideas. Please feel free to get in touch directly to chat about more general farming matters, ranging from soil structure, worms and crop rotation to cattle, machinery and handling systems…or just for a general natter.

Iain Wilkinson and Iain Graham are fortunate to be well supported by tractor driver and all round farmer, Craig Caird. Working at Balgay since 2014, Craig studied agriculture at SRUC Oatridge College, Edinburgh and has gained NC and HNC qualifications. He comes from a farming background and enjoys all aspects of farming life.

Mari Anderson is key to everyone’s success on all bookeeping and administrative matters. She has worked with Iain since his days running sotware company, Graham Technology – too many years for anyone to count – and is probably one of the most helpful and efficient people one could possibly meet. Mari is involved with all farms in Aird Farming Group.
