Land Business Podcast | Machinery Sharing
In the first Land Business podcast from Strutt & Parker, Philippa Hall discusses the sharing economy and what it has to offer the farming industry. She pays a visit to a three-way joint venture in Warwickshire, which is saving 15% in machinery costs though their collaborative enterprise. If you’re considering trimming costs by a similar arrangement what do you need to think of? Julie Robinson from Roythornes solicitors talks you through where to start. Technology has made sharing assets cheaper and easier than ever. As ownership becomes a thing of the past, people are increasingly renting beds, cars and boats directly from each other, all co-ordinated via the internet. Could the farming community benefit from this online peer-to-peer approach? Dan Robinson thinks so and has set up Farm-r to prove it.
