Garry Walsh took the plunge into the agricultural contracting business in 2010 when he saw a silage harvester for sale and decided to go out on his own, having spent a few years working as a driver after leaving school.

After buying the harvester, he gradually started picking up other pieces of machinery and hasn't looked back since.

"We were lucky we got a bit of work in our first year and were able to hold on to it and it grew from there. We're always trying to expand. This year we hope to cut 3,000 acres," he says.
