About Us

Hectare is an ambitious agritech company entirely focussed on eliminating current inefficiencies, and deficiencies, in the farming industry supply chains.

SellMyLivestock and Graindex are internet marketplaces enabling the online trade of farm livestock and combinable crops between farmers and their downstream trading chains. These two markets alone in the UK are worth over £9 billion per annum. We are in course of developing other products for commercial farmers, aimed at improving farmers’ margins whilst at the same time lowering the costs of procurement for their trading counterparties.

The agri-food supply chain is increasingly sophisticated. Modern supply chains demand more information than ever about each consignment. Product data must flow seamlessly up and down the supply chain. We offered bespoke software solutions to the food processing industry.


Our Brands

Sellmylivestock

SELLMYLIVESTOCK

An online marketplace where farm livestock, in this case, sheep, cattle and pigs can be traded between farmers or through to their downstream customers such as meat processors and supermarkets.

GRAINDEX

An online marketplace allowing combinable crops, such as grain, oil seed rape and beans to be traded between farmers or to their downstream customers such as millers and merchants.

Our Team

The Hectare team is led by Jamie McInnes, a web developer who married into an arable farming background. Jamie is supported by Andrew Loftus, a Yorkshire farmer and entrepreneur with longstanding links to the livestock industry, together with technical, admin, marketing and financial colleagues.

Industry expertise comes from non executives, Dan Luff (livestock) and Andrew Huxham (arable), joint founders of Hectare and both farming locally in Hampshire and West Sussex. Nick Shepherd, chairman of Hectare, provides guidance and oversight of the business, as well as leading Hectare’s fund raising.
