WHAT WE DO
Powered Pasture was formed by Alex Brewster shortly after taking part in the QMS Grazing Group initiative as a host farm.
Thanks to the advice gained from individuals such as John Bailey and Michael Blanche, Alex discovered his passion for grass and the potential profit to be gained, so started considering subdividing his farm into paddocks.
Alex saw the potential in a system modelled on farming practices which are common place in New Zealand...he had the grass, he had a vision, he needed equipment!
Realising the expense and challenges in sourcing equipment in Scotland, Alex spoke directly to suppliers and quickly started to purchase and import equipment from overseas, whilst also beginning to manufacture certain items in the UK.
Several of his fellow grazing group farmers were also keen to source the equipment, and from here Powered Pasture was born.
Powered Pasture started as a family farming business looking to deliver cost effective but profitable solutions. Interestingly all the companies we have chosen to work with share this same ethos, it is at the heart of what we do.
At the home farm we are currently subdividing 500 hectares and are working daily with our products, giving us the perfect test bed for individual products.
Given the flexibility of the systems, we are continually looking to develop our electric fencing and agricultural clothes product range with reliable and durable products which will ultimately meet the demands of UK farming.
