Crop trading made easy – sell your grain with confidence

Hectare launched in 2016 to make crop trading easier for farmers and to provide access to the UK’s largest network of buyers, so you can compare price offers and sell grain with confidence.

Hectare is set to attend this year’s Cereals event to share its vision with farmers. The company says:

“We get it – selling your grain isn’t easy. The market can be unpredictable, you’re dealing with lots of merchants, and it’s hard to know when it’s the best time to sell. We’re here to help.

“In 2016, our founder Jamie McInnes teamed up with arable farmer Andrew Huxham to launch Graindex. Their goal was to simplify selling grain for farmers by building a network of trusted buyers.

“Since then we’ve grown to become the leading grain marketplace in the UK. Last year, we relaunched as Hectare Trading to introduce even more exciting features, making it easier than ever to trade with confidence.

“And the cherry on top? It’s always free for farmers.”

Compare prices across the UK’s largest network of buyers

With Hectare you can benchmark prices from the UK’s biggest network of buyers, so you feel assured you’re always getting the best price, the company explains.

Hectare carefully verifies and credit checks all its buyers regularly, giving farmers peace of mind and the freedom to explore all bids that come their way.
