About Upper Nisbet Farm:
Upper Nisbet is a 636.25 hectare farm which is part of Lothian Estates in the Scottish Borders. The Neill family took over the tenancy at Upper Nisbet in May 2000.
The farm currently has 320 suckler cows. This number has been increased gradually year on year since arriving at Upper Nisbet with 200 cows in May 2000.
The area of the farm in arable production has doubled since taking on the tenancy in 2000. There are now 353.38 hectares of land in arable production. At the end of 2016 an additional 197.91 hectares was added to the farm area when a neighbour retired.
Upper Nisbet is a part of the Agri-EPI Centre satellite farm network.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
