For many, farming isn’t just a business it’s a way of life. Whether you’re milking cows or growing crops, it’s passion that drives farmers to succeed and generate an income from what they love to do.
However, throughout the year farmers and land owners face many challenges, from fluctuating market prices to extreme weather conditions. Such challenges can put businesses under financial pressures preventing them from seeking new opportunities.
