    WHAT'S THE BEST BANK FOR FARMERS?

    Everything you say is very interesting and explains a lot of things that have happened to me historically. Thanks for your detailed post. We will need to borrow around 60% of the Farms value so that may cut AMC out of the picture.

    WHAT'S THE BEST BANK FOR FARMERS?

    My late Father used AMC so I'll try them I think. They are owned by Lloyds so I think I will see if anyone banks with them also

    WHAT'S THE BEST BANK FOR FARMERS?

    Do you have a Relationship Manager? Also is the APP easy to use. Sorry I know these sound strange questions but we went with STARLING and found our Accountant can't get Access to their Accounts Software plus App doesn't generate Receipts + no one specifically deals with business Accounts.

    WHAT'S THE BEST BANK FOR FARMERS?

    Well I know what you mean. I perhaps should have phrased the question differently. I guess I mean which App is the best and which Bank was more likely to loan to Farmers!

    We've made it 5 mtrs high and will insulate it + put a DP membrane. The Oak frame co told us they are building to the same spec as a house. We are anticipating a call from Enforcement when the frame goes up. External is just log lap and Corrugated sheet . We thought to use box type sheets to...

    Soon as we finish, neighbours will be straight onto Enforcement who will arrive with the Tape Measure and take images of what's inside. Last winter we built a 20 mtr Poultry Pen with Chicken Wire , Fencing Stakes , netting and a Sleeper wall on one side. In November we added 1 x 2mt sections...

    True but we do actually produce hay from our land + tricky neighbours so must use it for its intended purpose . Thinking about underfloor. Apparently there's a way you can do it partly so cost is limited.
