With a rich and long-standing history of familial attendance, it came as no surprise for Pete Grewar to also be educated at the High School of Dundee. Upon leaving the school in 1995, Pete began working for the family business, Grewar Farming, based in East Perthshire. The business itself has been in operation since 1905, with the fourth generation of Grewars now working for the company, and forever striving towards making their farm more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. Additionally, Pete completed a forward-thinking Nuffield scholarship into 'The Future of Global Potato Production'.
