A focus on the person rather than money

A Focus On The Person Rather Than Money

Making an instant and lasting impression on his first visit to Irving and Elizabeth Moore’s farm in Mayo was the start of what is now year three of a long-term lease for farmer Michael Langan. The Moore’s ran a suckler and beef enterprise for many years before looking to step back and engaging with The Land Mobility Service. The preferred option was a long-term lease with the focus on finding the right person rather than maximum price. They like the Land Mobility approach. The liked in particular the win-win focus and the way they were able to get a feel for each potential collaborator.

They were very impressed with Michael, his approach, his plan, his attitude and his openness. According to Irvine “We live here on the farm, so we wanted the right person for the farm but also for ourselves, to have that peace of mind before agreeing to a lease, having similar values was very important”.

A lease is in place and it is working very well for all parties.
