Farming Partners are a team of grass fanatics at various stages of our career whose passion is to produce milk from grass, to work with the best people & to keep our cows happy and healthy. All farms have been greenfield dairy conversions. All businesses are run in differing forms of partnership. The growth of the farms has allowed team members the opportunity to grow their own dairy business. They now run farms and share in the profits on those farms. You can see some examples of this on our website. As we continue to grow we hope to find additional team members who are keen to progress in Grassland Dairy Farming and wish to build a career with us which will enable our growth and allow everyone a chance to move up the ladder.
