Farming Tools To Grow Your Farm Business Faster More Profitably in UK

How could farmers sell their produce more profitably?

We want to disrupt the way farmers are rewarded for their hard work and investment, in the favour of farmers in UK.   Whether you voted for Brexit or not, there are great threats and opportunities for farmers on the horizon.   Some questions come to mind before we can create and support the selling of farm produce more profitably.

  • Where do farmers sell their produce just now and why?
  • How can we sell farm produce online both locally, nationally and even globally?
  • How can we sell more via online farmers markets?
  • Who do farmers sell crops to?

Like we said, we’re not interested in re-running the Brexit vote.   However, we’re very interested in seizing the farmers opportunities from Brexit.

The value of the pound could stay low or even fall significantly for some time.   The financial markets don’t care about Brexit but they do care about uncertainty.   They hate uncertainty.   Once thing is certain about Brexit.   There will be lots of uncertainty for the next couple of years.   This means that UK farmers who produce food and drink have a massive opportunity to sell more profitably both in the UK and overseas.   Those who import farm produce to sell in the UK may suffer as could those who import farming machinery.  However this article is focusing on the positives, the opportunities to farmers, of Brexit.

Buyers in the UK of UK farm produce will be prepared to pay more for UK farm produce as importing costs compare less favourably than they may have done pre-Brexit vote.   The UK domestic market farmers market should be gobbled up by food and drink retailers and many of them will want to tie farmers into long-term deals to guarantee supply at low prices.   Farmers need to resist the understandable desire to sign up for long-term food retailer deals without getting a higher premium price than previously coughed up by UK retailers.

Looking overseas?   Why not?   The value of the pound makes UK farm produce more attractive.   Why not get together online to sell more UK farm produce overseas?   What are the problems?   How do we overcome those problems.   Maybe the subject of an upcoming online Farming Risk Forum discussion.   Come back to find out more.

9th February 2018 – Smart Farming To Develop With Artificial Intelligence AI Advancement

Smart farming includes using equipment with developing technology that will increasingly using AI to boost productivity in developed countries.

Precision farming is not new, but farm labour will become increasingly unnecessary, if finance is easily available, with the use of AI, and farmers will become more productive.

The Bank of England recently indicated that UK interest rates are going to rise sooner and faster to try to cool an overheating economy.   There is therefore doubt that the money will be available to farmers in UK.   The lack of money is the key impediment to smarter farming, not the tech knowhow needed to make farmers more productive.

The UK government will need to step in where the EU are leaving and invest more in farmers and farming technology to make the country more efficient, self-sufficient so we don’t need to buy-in and make farming more sustainable.
