Renting land to TNP for free range chicken growing
suits both parties
TNP grows many of its free range and organic chickens and turkeys on land rented to the company by a number of Norfolk farmers.
Graham Negus, of Church Farm, Shropham says renting land to TNP suits both parties.
Graham, who grows organic vegetables and runs Norfolk Horn sheep and Red Poll cattle on his 500 acres, has rented a 70-acre field to TNP for about 15 years.
He likes the arrangement because it provides a separate income stream.
“It’s always a good idea to spread your options on income and not rely on one” he says.
Graham has an annual grazing agreement with TNP, reviewed on an annual basis.
The sandy-loam field has good access and benefits from a mains water supply. Roads and tracks to it are maintained by TNP.
“The arrangement works well,” adds Graham. “It gives us a steady income, and we take the chicken muck away, which is ideal for our organic farm.
“TNP keep a clean and tidy site and communications are good with them.”

Graham Negus says he would happily recommend a similar arrangment to other farmers if it fitted in with their business plan.
