E.D. Swain Ag Contracting – Canterbury
Price On Call
E.D. Swain Ltd is a small, dedicated, family owned and operated business offering its clients a very personal service. Based in Dunsandel on the Canterbury Plains in the South Island, E.D. Swain Ltd cart stock, bulk, freight and also specialise in grass contracting including mowing, baling, raking, and wrapping services.
The trucking side of the business has now grown into a fleet of six Scania’s carting a mixture of stock & bulk.
In 2006 balage contracting was added to the services when Eddie who owns and leases 220ha in Canterbury used for mixed cropping, bull beef and dairy grazing, realized he needed a more reliable service for his own farm. He bought his own baler and before long people started requesting him to do the balage contracting on their own farms. 2015 saw another expansion to the contracting side with a purchase of a local contracting business expanding the whole operation.
