We have three farmers we are working with right now who have contacted us because they have heard we can find creative solutions to their farm ownership issues. We have three with aspiring farmers looking to secure land that is ear marked for them, but they need the finance solutions. And we have one farmer who has some gun farmers but needs to find debt solutions to help them onto the farm and share ownership.
You may know that Tim and Tegan Hicks (co-founders) are on the hunt for more land to lease. Their 1000 acre lease, which they have had for 2 years, runs out in October. So they have been trying every trick in the book to find more land for their cattle. They have had to sell their sheep but are keen to hold onto their cattle herd.
Please keep telling people about us, as you never know where these discussions lead. Your discussion may open an opportunity for someone else, and someone else’s discussion may open an opportunity for you.
We have just submitted a proposal to develop a community farmer attraction plan. We are working with a community champion who wants to get more farmers on the land, help retiring farmers to step back in a dignified way and to activate locals to invest into local farms.
