Will joined the H&H Group Board in October 2018.
Together with his wife Carol and Father Will farms 2,000 acres based at Bee Edge Farm in Eyemouth, Scottish Borders. He is the third generation of Hamilton’s to use the St Boswell’s Auction Mart, which he first attended as a young child. Will has been using the mart to sell cattle since the early 1980’s and he also sold finished and ewe lambs through both Wooler and Newtown St Boswells marts when he had a breeding sheep enterprise.
Demonstrating his commitment to the mart system, Will finishes 350 head of store cattle which he purchases at a number of Harrison and Hetherington’s auction marts, including at Carlisle and Wooler. He aims to sell most of these cattle at St Boswells, weekly throughout the year, to supply local butchers.
A highly respected farmer and businessman Will is also currently UK Chairman of the AHDB Wheat Recommended List Committee.
