Farm Solutions:

It started its development providing short term relief services to farmers. Over the years in accordance with demand, it supplied full time people on contract into its client’s farms. In the period 1998-2007, it was required to source skilled farm people from Eastern Europe to fill on- farm vacant positions. During this period, it had a network of agents providing staff from Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Czech republic and Slovakia.

In 2009, it extended its farm staff provision services into the UK market also and set up its Wiltshire office and the subsequent development of the Regional manager network.

2012 is seeing the continued development of the international recruitment services and we are looking forward to writing the next chapter of the Farm Solutions story and having our people on farms throughout the World.
