Bushey Down Farm

Contracting

An integral part of our business is the contracting and contract share farming arrangements we have with our customers. Our primary preference is to operate on a contract share farming basis whereby a joint venture agreement is formed between ourselves and the landowner. Both parties keep their own individual business identity, while crops and stock remain the property of the landowner. We provide the management expertise, labour and machinery to establish, harvest and sell the crop.
