The industry is constantly changing and farmers and horticulturalists have shown themselves to be adaptable and resilient in the face of this change. We can be your trusted partner in taking your business forward profitably.

Xero is a strong and flexible cloud-based tool to deal with your accounting. In addition, there are industry specific add-ons to help you with your business decisions.

These can track the income and costs of your individual crops by season and by field. This can aid decisions such as whether to renew the lease on a field. They will also record your livestock and other products, tracking their profitability.

They take your data from Xero, so nothing has to be entered twice.

Figures from Xero can be used to create long-range projections. The scenarios can then be changed to provide information for decisions such as “Should I consolidate my debt?”, “Should I buy the neighbouring farm?” and how diversification will really affect your business’s figures.

You can then readily report management information for the bank or other lender.

Budget and actual can be compared in real time, in as much detail as you want. The key is, if you can’t measure, you can’t manage.

Change is hard. Lewis Brownlee can help make it easier for you.
