Video: Share farming partnership gives young farmer a break

Young farmer Aled Morgan faced a tough future in farming – with a family farm not big enough for both him and his brother to work on, there were few opportunities available to him.

However, a succession problem provided an opportunity for him to enter a share farming partnership with beef and sheep farmers Gareth and Pam Stephens.

They own the land and machinery, Aled works the farm and looks after the stock and they have a 50-50 share in the stock.

Watch the video to find out how the relationship works, how they set up the legal side of the agreement, and why they would encourage others to enter a partnership.
