If Dyson, a billionaire, can invest tens of millions in his farms, and still not make them profitable, what hope does a smaller farmer have, with far few resources, especially if government subsidies are to be slashed after Brexit?
Could be allsorts of reasons for posting a loss, thats over lots of acres remember, so folk say.Just seen it on another thread.
Farms lost £4 million last year.
All those who posted about how well the farms were run with new tracks / buildings / Fendts with 6 cameras in the cab, must be feeling very silly...........
33,000 acres. That's a loss of £121 / acre. Even with subs.
But yes, it could be making a loss for a reason.
I thought it was a bit patronising. The fellas only been at the job for 5 minutes and he assumes because he's losing money on his massive farm of some of the best arable land in the country that all the poor sods with under 2000 acres must be at breaking point.Pete Waterman has a huge model railway, James Dyson has a huge play farm, just how the mega rich pass their time and always have done. However, I find it laughable that he thinks he is going to represent all farmers.
