"We have used Driver Farms each year for the past twelve years for a number of different operations on the farm: as well as doing all the fertilising and spraying every year, they have done both primary and secondary cultivations for us along with drilling. The wide range of quality, well maintained equipment that Driver Farms uses has meant that they have always been on top of any job asked by them, but the feature that we like most about them is timeliness. There is never a moments delay between being asked to do a job and it being done."
