Equipment & Services
The things you need to Produce & Provide
Equipment & Sundries
A move into processing food on your farm and / or selling it direct to local customers means you will need to invest in equipment and make sure your buildings and facilities meet the required specifications for food production.
Produce & Provide is forging links with trusted suppliers who can offer you advice and who can back up the equipment they supply with the service you need. We only want to work with suppliers who will do more than simply sell you a machine and walk away. Below you will find links to a small number of companies that can help you. We welcome others who feel they can add real value to new farm ventures to get in touch.

Advice & Support
Processing and selling food from your farm requires different skills to those required for rearing of livestock and growing crops. We can help you to develop those skills, but we are also enlisting the help of experts in to ensure you can access the best advice and support available.
For anyone setting up a new venture, there is more to it than simply buying some equipment. You may require finance to buy the things you need, for example. You will need to know what the requirements are around food hygiene regulations and how to set up your production facilities to meet them.
But, perhaps most importantly, you will need to think carefully about how you are going to market your products and connect with your customers.
We are currently talking to people who can help Produce & Provide members to do all these things and create a successful new venture.
