OUR FARMING BUSINESS

We set up our farming business in 2008. For us it was a totally new venture. From a standing start we have settled the herd at 250 organic cows with an objective of sustainable production from as much home-grown food as possible. Currently yields stand at just over 8500 litres with 4000 coming from forage. We were selected finalists for the 2019 NMR RABDF gold cup which demonstrated the commitment and quality of work produced by the farm team. The farm is used as a training facility for local vet students and we pride ourselves in developing placement students from agricultural universities.

OUR APPROACH

Our aim is to work to give you solutions that optimise performance, support sustainable production and deliver a product that meets consumer expectations. We work with your resources including external specialists and input suppliers to achieve the results that build resilience and integrity into your dairy supply chain.

hOW WE WORK

We understand all businesses are complex and have different requirements. The areas in which we operate will often overlap with other input providers on farm. As an independent consultant we work with everyone in your farm team to deliver the objectives you set for us.

We take a long term view based on future proofing your business within the dairy supply chain and in working with you, our clients, we are committed to the promotion of the dairy industry for generations to come. 

Please contact us for an initial consultation to establish your requirements. From here we will develop a proposition of support that meets your needs. This is totally flexible
