Farm24 was launched by Farmers Guardian and sponsors Morrisons, to shine a spotlight on the passion and commitment it takes to produce the food we eat. 

For over 50 years, we have been supporting British Farmers with their investments in plant and machinery. Our hire purchase and leasing products have been used on the JCB range including; Loadall, Fastrac and Telemasters, and other complementary assets such as combines, sprayers, forage harvesters and 4x4s, helping farmers spread the cost and retain their cash or overdrafts for things like fuel, fertiliser, wages and tax. 

We spoke to Callum Bates, Partner at J Bates and Sons, about their need for new machinery and how JCB Finance has supported them with JCBs and more. 

“We’ve expanded quite a bit recently with some big jobs coming on board and we needed some new equipment to be able to run those jobs more efficiently and without any breakdowns. We can run less equipment and save money on fuel if we run newer equipment. Downtime for us is a real problem so the newer and cleaner we can keep the equipment the better. 

90% of the business I do with our Relationship Manager Karen is over the phone or over email and it's fast and done, which is what l'm looking for. You can have a conversation with her about what it is you need and why you need it, and whether there are flexibilities within what we're doing - so she is very helpful. 

The sign online process is simple, I’m not always sat in an office, so it makes things easier - if we stop for lunch I can jump online and login when it suits me. Such convenience does make my life that bit easier." Read the full case study.

We have been supporting British farmers like J Bates and Sons for over 50 years. Our industry, asset and finance knowledge all contribute to the service we provide. If you are interested exploring asset finance options, contact your local Relationship Manager today.

We would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all British farmers who work 24/7 to produce the food we eat. We will be supporting #Farm24 and helping to raise awareness of the effort and care which goes into producing the food we eat.
