Borders farm to diversify into computers

A BORDERS farm plans to make money out of computers, reports The Scotsman.

The paper describes a couple farming on 1000 acres at Broughton, who have just completed a £190,000 project to create the Glenholm Centre.

The centre has been created as a guest house accommodating ten people. It will provide a computer training facility with short courses for eight people, and will be a base for seminars and presentations.

The aim is to integrate farming, information technology, business training and tourism into a commercial venture.

The farm has 350 Blackface ewes as well as cattle. It also supports barley, rape and grass.
