Contract farming provides a unique opportunity for a landowner to step back from active farming and release his working capital, whilst retaining full involvement in the farming policy and land management.
This is achieved by selecting a contractor who provides all the labour and machinery and is remunerated with a fixed contract fee, plus a share of the profits.
Laurence Gould have been at the forefront of setting up this type of Joint Venture. Our aim is to ensure the maximum amount of flexibility for the landowner whilst ensuring a fair level of return for the contractor's time and effort.
Contract farming is possible across all agricultural enterprises and is particularly effective where the landowner does not wish to fully cease active farming and commit his land to a tenancy agreement.
