TFA Rent Survey – Has Your Ability to Pay Your Farm Rent Been Impacted by Covid-19 Control Measures?

A significant number of farm businesses have been acutely impacted by the measures taken by the Government to control the spread of Covid-19. The loss of the hospitality and foodservice market was a massive blow to those involved in these supply chains as prices fell and perishable products had no viable outlets. Also, individual farm businesses with public facing diversification activities saw their incomes slashed. As a result, a number of our members have reported difficulties in paying rent. We have been grateful to many landlords who have reached agreements with their tenants, to reschedule or to even waive rent payments and disappointed with the few notable exceptions who have continued to insist that rent is paid regardless. To get a better handle on the extent of the problem, the TFA would like as many tenant farmers to complete a short survey as possible. This can be found by clicking here.
