Our primary function is to market your grain and to us this is more than simply managing a transaction.  We pro-actively market your grain talking to buyers about availability of grain, helping them source their requirements and you market your grain.

However,  we see our role as broader than this: our aim is to help you manage your whole organic arable enterprise more effectively.
