The link between the founders of farming partners has been routed in spending time in New Zealand and the general principles of grassland farming that we were exposed to while working there.
THE FIRST PARTNERSHIP
The first partnership was set up when Richard and William Beattie had purchased a 240-hectare block in Scotland and were keen to set it up as a grass-based dairy.
Richard met with Brendan Muldowney through a chance meeting and the possibility of looking at a partnership style arrangement modelled on the New Zealand share farming model was discussed.
Three months later Brendan and his wife Maureen were on a ferry from Ireland to Scotland with 300 cows following behind them on lorries. This partnership has proven to be a really successful formula and one that has now been rolled out to allow other partners into the business.
THE GROWTH OF THE PARTNERSHIP
Over the course of the past seven years there have been a number of other farms taken on and a number of other farm partnerships developed. These all work off the simple principle of running high performing farms that generate a high level of profit which can then be used to share with the partners and reinvested in the farms that we operate.
