Derwent Buyers Group
AF is the largest agricultural buying group in the UK and has more than fifty years of experience working with members in the East of England. Through referral and collaboration AF delivers an outstanding service to members across the UK and works closely with a number of other buying groups to extend the range of products and services available to farmers everywhere. This benefits everyone as expertise and combined volumes help to drive down prices.
As a not-for-profit farmer owned co-operative AF is registered as an Industrial Provident Society with its members as shareholders.
Its buying office is staffed by a qualified team of dedicated category specialists, largely recruited from the industry sector they represent, which is unique in the industry and provides an invaluable resource as DBG AF Associate members have access to expertise across a range of products and services not always associated with farming businesses.
