How we work
The office, based in Suffolk, takes the administrative burden away from your farm / estate office, processing and streamlining invoices and bank payments. Run as a true farmer owned cooperative, not for profit, we are passionate about the true principles upon which the group was founded 60 years ago, planning farm business requirements, aggregating volumes and negotiating very competitive prices backed up with professional service and impartial advice.
Farm Businesses pay an annual fee based on their farm business’s productive area, suppliers are therefore not supporting the business in anyway, promoting good pricing, positive business relationships and an effective supply chain. Supplier rebates are returned to Members, in full, demonstrating that “early commitment pays for your annual membership”. For a committed Member, membership is, in effect free.
We provide Farm Businesses with a professional, impartial and reliable service based on honesty and transparency. A service which not only enables Members to save money on an extensive range of farm inputs, but also reduces and simplifies administration, allowing them to spend more time on the farm. Increasingly farming businesses are realising that the old principles still hold true, yield and price of crops sold are the biggest influencers upon farm performance and gross margin, we are here to ensure that our members have the time to maximise these.
