Case Study



Welcome to NFU Scotland’s Joint Venture Hub

NFU Scotland believes in a healthy and vibrant industry. An integral part of this are options for use of land. Joint Ventures are an operational structure that allows for young people to start or develop a farming business, but also allows an existing farmer to further develop their business and/or reduce their day to day role on the farm.

The purpose of the Joint Venture Hub is to facilitate collaborative arrangements tailored to suit any specific situation. These arrangements may be as simple or as complex as desired but must be workable for all parties involved. In many cases it is envisaged that the arrangements will evolve overtime, to help develop dynamic, progressive and profitable farm businesses.

The Joint Venture Hub is about trying to help restructure our industry by encouraging young people into farming and bringing new skills, new thinking and the next generation into agriculture. By matching people looking for, and offering, opportunities and providing a service to facilitate workable arrangements.



The Joint Venture Hub is available to both members and non-members of NFUS. Any expressions of interest will be passed on via NFUS for parties to have an initial discussion. Parties wishing to take advantage of specially negotiated professional advice rates must be a member of NFUS.

NFU Scotland’s Joint Venture Hub aims to allow individuals to find the right option for both themselves and their business. These options include

  • Tenancies
  • Contract Farming
  • Joint Ventures/Share Farming

The confidential service will allow people to explore their options and will help match farmers interested in long leases and collaborative arrangements such as partnerships, share farming or contract rearing with the next generation of younger farmers keen to progress a career in the industry.

This much needed initiative offers a platform for existing farmers, with no succession arrangements in place, to contact younger farmers and together they can then develop long term farming operational and financial plans.

Advantages of Joint Ventures -

  • Improved economies of scale to increase profits & farm viability
  • Improved work/life balance/better social and family life
  • Improved work environment and reduced work load
  • Reduced stress through shared decisions & companionship
  • Improved farm safety
  • Reduced investment risk & better decision making
  • More efficient use of fixed costs
  • Improved use of skills, training & new ideas
  • Wealth of experience & knowledge built up over many years


Below are a list of opportunities
