UK-based lowland farming management firm Farmcare has entered into a series of partnerships with numerous farming businesses which will take over the operational management of its farms.
This follows the company’s announcement in November 2017, where it said it would be restructuring and cease all operational farming. The firm said it would enter joint ventures going forward and continue to develop its land and property assets, investing further where appropriate.
All of the new partnerships have been agreed and Farmcare employees who are involved in operational farming have transferred to work for the new partners.
Farmcare chief executive, Richard Quinn, said: “These new partnerships with leading contractors across the UK, will increase the economic resilience of the farms to ensure their long term prosperity. The Farmcare team has worked hard over the last four years to modernise the business, and these new partnerships will enable each of our farms to continue to develop and perform at an even higher level.
“In securing these partnerships we have been pleased that all of our operational farming staff have transferred to work for the new partners, and that we have helped all of our support staff to find new roles.”
