Greenshields Agri – New WebsiteJune 4, 2013
The Greenshields Agri group (“Greenshields Agri” or “GAL”) has launched a new website. In the past three years, Greenshields Agri has developed from a concept agribusiness to a profitable operating business supported by a sophisticated farming group and a farm real estate management concern. Greenshields Agri owns and farms 2,800 acres of farmland in the northern grain belt of the UK, an area which is ideally suited for grain production, achieving some of the highest wheat yields in the world.
GAL was established in 2010 as a registered UK farming company. GAL continues to expand organically and, having proven the concept, additional investment sources are sought to increase capitalisation and market penetration. A focused business approach is adopted in respect of the land in the production of grains and oilseeds crops. Planned investment in strategic agricultural businesses such as grain stores, grain processing, grain distribution & transportation aim to complement farming investments and enhance returns. In addition there are further potential revenue streams from renewable energy , agricultural property development and holiday lets.
The Group has an incentivised lean management structure using share options and carried interest with minimised expenses and fees taken in equity. Active management of grain price risk is carried out to optimize returns. GrainCo is the largest grain trading and marketing business in the North of England and Scotland and provides grain storage & marketing expertise. Estate and farm management services are provided by George F. White, one of the largest agricultural service providers operating within the UK Northern Grain Belt. The Group’s initial focus has been on the UK Northern Grain Belt, although other compatible geographical areas are being considered, such as Canada.
