Agriculture Contracting

Arable Farming & Agriculture Contracting

Tim Hues is BASIS and FACTS qualified and runs the Arable arm of the business ensuring crops are regularly monitored and inspected in conjunction with our independent agronomist. We grow a range of different crops including Wheat, Winter & Spring Barley, Oilseed Rape, Beans, Oats and Maize.

As well as farming our own land we farm other landowners under contract management agreements. This removes the day to day hassle of farm management from the landlord but gives peace of mind knowing that their asset is being looked after and being farmed efficiently and effectively to maximise returns. These agreements vary according to suit each individual requirement, from stubble to stubble operations to whole farm management including grain storage
and marketing.

We embrace modern precision farming techniques wherever possible, all of our fertiliser and seed is applied variably via satellite, meaning that we never under or over apply. This not only has great environmental benefits but ensures all inputs are used as efficiently as possible.

All our tractors and Combine Harvester are fitted with yield mapping and GPS guidance to maintain efficiency in operation.

We also offer a range of individual contracting operations and operate a varied range of modern well maintained machinery. We also offer individual operations.
