What is a Cooperative?
‘We are a not for profit organisation owned by our Members who are equal shareholders, Cooperating together for mutual benefit’.
Who we are
We are a team of highly skilled and experienced buyers, grain traders and administration personnel utilising modern IT systems. The Board of Directors are individually running farming businesses or in businesses aligned with agriculture. We have provided support to farming businesses for over 50 years, and with over 1400 farmer Members across the UK, the Cooperative is highly regarded in the Agricultural sector and prides itself on being completely transparent and trustworthy.
What’s in it for you?
At Fram Farmers, “cooperative” is a way of life for our Members. We save farm businesses time, money and streamline their office administration. Members receive one invoice per month and this is paid by Direct Debit at the end of the month. Members regard us as an integral part of their risk management strategy. We have proved to be a crucial part of everyday life for our Members.
What we do
We offer 3 services, Purchasing Farm Inputs, Grain Marketing and Streamlined Administration. Our aim is to provide farming Members with the support they require to forward plan and develop their farming business. We actively pursue the core principles upon which we were founded, aggregation of volume and timely negotiation with suppliers. We can offer very competitive pricing on a wide range of products, including Fertiliser, Agrochemicals, Seed, Fuel, Feed, Animal Health Supplies, Building Materials, Electricity, Machinery and Spares, Renewables & Telecoms. We also offer a number of Grain Marketing Schemes tailored to suit our Members requirements.
