Our Services

Horticulture

Planfarm’s consulting arm to Horticulture is a respected leader in Western Australia’s burgeoning industry and provides farmers and farm businesses with unprecedented access to professional support and data.

In fact, when Vegetables WA and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) looked to develop a financial and production benchmarking analysis for Western Australian horticulture, they partnered with Planfarm. Our unique and powerful level of knowledge provides clients with levels of business innovation and robust decision making that makes them the leaders in the field.

The end goal with Planfarm Horticulture is to ensure that you enjoy much improved levels of business, financial management, sustainability, profitability and growth. For example, ask yourself these questions on the standard service areas for Planfarm clients – all of whom represent the top 25% of WA producers.

  • Have you been able to achieve a higher income per hectare while keeping your costs as a percentage of income below 65%?
  • Are you achieving 8% to 15% returns on capital?
  • Do you produce Key Operating Performance ratios?
  • Do you produce Single or Multiple Enterprise Gross Margin Analysis?

Additionally, Planfarm Benchmarking brings objectivity to the analysis of your performance, identifies strengths and weaknesses and creates a basis for good decision making. Forward thinking and planning provides strategies that guarantee you the very best chance of prolonged success, whilst exposing the business to the least amount of risk.

Clients of our Horticulture services also receive additional insights from our complimentary Landline newsletters, as well as access to the Herbicide Guide app.

Client Testimonials

We’ve had the principal farm for 80 years and, like any business, you can get a little comfortable. Partnering with Planfarm gives us another perspective and allows smarter, independent decision making and analysis. We better understand the profit drivers in our business which has led to the opportunity to expand our operation via acquisition and lease.

– James and Margaret Couper

We moved from South Africa two years ago, as potato and summer crop farmers, broadacre grain and sheep was a whole new experience. My son JP has taken on the full responsibility of farming our farm after the loss of my husband in South Africa only weeks before we moved. Planfarm have been critical in strategic planning and educating us on Australian farming conditions and accessing and building historical production records. Planfarm is an important factor in our succession planning as our situation is not a simple, standard plan, their role is vital for our future as a young family.

– Samantha Van De Velde

We’ve partnered with Planfarm for three generations. They help to keep us level headed and to approach farm operations, succession planning and general business with a balanced view. They are a great sounding board for our ideas and bring many of their own to the table. Importantly, Planfarm’s historical records of the business allow us to review data and make informed decisions. I’ve also participated in Planfarm Academy which has been very beneficial.
