After being the driving force behind Poplars Farm for 30 years, Simon and Jane Brown decided in 2008 that they wanted to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life, and have time to focus on other business interests. With their children pursuing successful careers outside of farming, they were looking for a way to stay in the family home, while the farm around them remained a vibrant and well managed asset.
They were keen for the farm to remain under their control and for it to continue to thrive and yield them an annual return. Grasslands were able to offer their dairy management services, which achieved all of their objectives.
The solution offered to us by Grasslands has ensured that Poplars Farm remains a well-managed and profitable farm, securing us and our family a better future in the agricultural industry. We can now enjoy other interests without worrying about the day to day management of the farm
