Contract farming and joint ventures have become increasingly
popular in recent years, enabling landowners to retain control of
their farms while pooling resources and reducing their investment
of time and money. There can also be tax advantages to entering
into these relationships.
We have been establishing and managing contract farming
agreements for more than twenty years and can tailor them to suit
the needs of the individual farm. For example, you can remain
involved in decisions such as cropping or varietal choice while
leaving the day-to-day running of the farm to your chosen
contractor. You can also adjust annually the amount of land you put
in and profit you take out.
By sharing resources with other farming businesses whether land
or machinery or expertise you can minimise the level of capital
investment and also benefit significantly from economies of scale.
We can advise you on negotiating a joint venture that will extract
the maximum mutual benefit for you and your partners.
