How we can help

A fair price for Farmer and Factory is the best deal for all.  Grower’s can progress, reinvest and move the industry on their farm forward through technology or mechanical advancements; while the factories can also do the same. Farming is changing and we want to still be around when these changes have taken place so we aim to be collective, fair and sustainable; through being progressive, technology savvy and environmentally conscientious; while offering all our customers traceability and transparency.

Bringing It Back To Local

Bringing in more competition to the local market allows opportunities for farmers to be able to market crops to local customers where supply has previously been pushed out to other parts of the UK due to availability.This provides significant savings per ton of crop to be had on haulage and transport costs. Offering a local supply to a local customer, removes these inefficiencies within the supply chain.

Strength In Numbers

Some consumers like to deal with Farmers in groups; we are a group that is progressively expanding in numbers offering factories greater tonnage and varieties from a number of sources to sustain throughput and productivity of the end produce all year round.

Increased profits

This is simple; we’ve cut out the middle man; so we are able to deliver a better price to the Famer while achieving a superior product to the factories as we supply a product we believe in from source.

Increase efficiencies

This comes back to strength in numbers. Combined the farms allow scope to venture into other partnerships and establish buying agreements/share agreements for machinery as well as other aspects of farm purchasing. This empowers the growers to be able to negotiate better deals due of the economies of scale with the aim to help manage price volatility. Growers will be in a better position to negotiate fair contracts with their onward customers enabling sustainability, productivity and viability of the family farms for the long term. This will ultimately give the end customer a larger pool from which to draw supply to allow a future of sustainable farming.
