Our experience, commitment, dedication and attention to detail provide the one stop shop for farm owners in looking after their farm or estate.
With our experience within the Cotswolds, we have encountered all the challenges that may arise throughout a contract farming agreement and strive to work with the customer to achieve the best result for them. Working with a proven, simple business plan, RC Baker Ltd continue to provide a profitable and sustainable farming solution, reducing cost and increasing margins.
Treating each farm as our own, we always look to the long term future of any partnership. We not only bring operational expertise but we can provide a modern machinery fleet which utilises precision farming technology to improve farm performance. Our continual investment in machinery enables the business to develop and be at the leading edge bringing the latest technologies and practices to improve productivity and maximise returns.
After 40 years in professional contracting work we have developed significant expertise in both machinery use and farming techniques and systems. As a result, we contract for a large acreage for owners and tenants who choose not to carry the high cost of machinery and its equally high operational expenses. Our investment in machinery is huge, as is the experience developed over four decades of general farm contracting, it offers customers and contract farming partners a highly efficient service at competitive rates, that make machinery ownership on most farms extremely hard to justify.

"As a farm business consultant I am involved in farm managment and the operation of contract farming arrangements. I have been working with Charlie and his team since 1998 in North Oxfordshire where he carries out all the field operations on 900 acres of arable. In around 2002 this became a contract farming agreement and it continues to operate successfully, mainly down to the professional approach of RC Baker Ltd."
