Landowners entrust us to manage their land within long-term relationships that marry agronomic excellence that take into account customer requirements and expectations.

Our farms are spread geographically from Scotland to East Anglia and Kent to Dorset. They cover a wide variety of storage facilities, soil types and yield capabilities.

We design bespoke agreements with clients that take into account:

  • The risk appetite and level of financial certainty required from the client
  • The amount of time and expertise that the client can bring to bear
  • Any particular income or operational requirements and available capital resources

We aim to maximise sustainable and superior returns over the full rotation.  In practice our Full Service farm management arrangements are based on

  • Farm Business Tenancies, where Sentry assume the complete farming risk in exchange for a competitive fixed-term tenancy that reflects landowner expectations and farming returns
  • Contract Farming or Joint-Venture arrangements, where the risk and rewards are shared between Sentry and the landowner and where Sentry organise the day-to-day operations and the landowner plays a role in the strategic direction of his business
  • Management-only agreements where Sentry supply specialist farm management on  a long-term or interim basis

Agreement Flexibility

  • Contract supply of labour and machinery with profit incentives
  • Management with or without equity and profit incentives
  • Bespoke arrangements to provide hands on management for short medium or longer term requirements
  • Collaborative agreements providing mutual ‘cost of production’ benefits through greater levels of labour and machinery efficiency
  • Associate Membership for those who wish to retain full control of their business but utilise the economy of scale benefits working with Sentry can bring.
