From Farmers to Farmers...
As one of the largest farming operations in Berwickshire, Drydsdales, like many farmers struggled finding the right workers.
Let down by transient gang masters and agencies who didn't understand farming, especially during the busy planting and harvesting seasons, they decided to set up their own agency, Option A.
This high level of service in backed up by what our customers like you say about us.
What we do

· Harvest Workers & Pickers

We have recently supplied workers to clear up the brash from a recently felled wood. Tidying and burning the brash.
Whilst they were at it they were able to use their forklift experience to help clear old machinery out from the yard.
