We create sustainable and consistent profits through cooperation between multiple farms. Each landowner grows a particular crop on their block of land so the costs and profits are combined and split amongst all. In doing so we spread our risk by growing different crops for different markets. A landowner is not gambling on growing 1 or 2 crops on their own year on year; they have a share of the profits and costs of up to 7 crops by working together.
We grow: feed and milling wheat, seed and feed barley, maize, spring oats, potatoes and oilseed rape. Rotations are kept simple, but are managed to ensure they are sustainable over the long term.
We strive for the highest yields and optimal profits through efficient use of seeds, fertilisers, sprays and fuel. With our block cropping partners we sample all our soils and zone each block of land by soil type to better manage seeds and fertiliser. We monitor each block via satellite to measure which areas of land require more attention and over time improve both fertility and yield. We plan over the long term rather than the short term to make sure we are as efficient and productive as we possible can be.
