Farm Equipment Financing

Including tractors, sprayers, and crop balers

We could fund almost any farm asset, new or used. From tractors, sprayers, crop balers and combine harvesters.

We’re here to help you get the equipment, machinery, and vehicles you need to run and grow your business. 

Supporting a secure and sustainable agricultural sector

Our new report identifies opportunities across the agriculture industry to future proof the sector.

Our latest report, which highlights research from the National Farmers Union, finds that the challenges the agriculture industry is facing cannot be tackled by just one organisation or sector alone. Individual farmers are part of a larger whole, and agriculture is itself part of our wider food ecosystem.

Automation and innovations are increasingly being used across farms to produce more food profitably and sustainably and in a bid to achieve NFU Net Zero target by 2040.
