“Our business is based on a partnership between landowners who want their land farmed to high standard, and young people with skills and drive but lack the resources to own a farm themselves.
By joining the two together in a farming partnership we create high performing, highly profitable and highly sustainable grass based farming businesses”
BRENDAN MULDOWNEY, Farming Partners
We are proud to announce our New Zealand partnership with Waikirikiri Farm, Canterbury.
Who are Farming Partners?
Professional farmers, we have joined together to farm a number of dairy and heifer rearing farms in Scotland, Ireland and most recently New Zealand, creating big opportunities for passionate land owners and keen farmers.
How do we farm?
We specialise in grass based farming, growing as much green grass as possible and turning this grass into high quality milk from cows. Our calendar follows the grass growth curve, we calf our cows in the spring as grass starts to grow and dry our cows off around Christmas time. We feed silage through the winter as the grass stops growing.
There is a big future in farming, for our teams as well as ourselves. Investing in our people with training, support and career progression is really important to us. In fact, several of our Farm Managers and Partners joined us as students and now run farms themselves, sharing in the profits.
Partnering with land owners who are passionate about their farms and want them to be farmed to the highest standards is incredibly important, it is the foundation of what we do. Our people have the skills to run grass-based farming systems. They have a track record of delivering consistent profits and passion for what they do and how we farm.
