We know, as well as you do, that in the 21st century, there is far more to running a successful farm business than what happens on the field.

From studying the market and ordering the right treatment for your crops or livestock, to marketing the products you have. By joining an agricultural buying group, you can effectively extend the personnel in your business without the pressure or expense of hiring anyone in full time.

Part of our offering as the UK’s leading farmer-owned buying group is ‘ease of administration’.

When buying through AF we do all the hard work for you. We find the best product for you, negotiate with the supplier and arrange delivery. We also simplify and handle the billing process.

Paper Trail

By ordering through AF we keep the paper trail, so you don’t have to worry.

Our highly skilled administrative team check and process monthly invoices into a single consolidated account, allowing you to view exactly what you’ve purchased. Combine this with trade cards and fuel cards and you’ll have a very clear, monthly tally of your business expenses.

Improving efficiency

By choosing electronic billing (eBilling) we provide you with a single electronic document per month. This is issued 48 hours earlier than by post.

We also have an eAccounts offering, which allows you to import your AF invoices into your Farmplan, Landmark, Sage or Xero accounts package.

Professional payroll management

A time consuming but crucial element of your farm business will be managing your payroll. This is where AF can step in to carry the burden.
AF’s Payroll team will work with you to manage your payroll in an efficient and timely manner. This ensures your staff are paid correctly and on time, giving you more time to focus on your business.

We keep up to date with current legislation to make sure that you are compliant with all elements of the payroll process, from start to finish.
