Farm Matters traces its roots back to a software package from the 90's called 4Farms. 4Farms evolved into LMeNTRY and went from strength to strength with users particularly liking the extensification calculator and the second to none support offered by Neil Wilkinson. While popular, LMeNTRY was built on technology which was by 2006 considered out-dated. With the arrival of a new young developer, Paul Holliday, came new ideas and a progression to newer more sustainable technologies. Using LMeNTRY as inspiration a replacement software package called Farm Matters was created. With easier usability, more features and help from Neil the transition to Farm Matters was very well received. As the farming landscape changed so too did Farm Matters with regular updates and new features. In 2012 the decision was taken to once again update the technology behind the software in addition to performing a complete review of customer needs. This saw a completely new version of Farm Matters released in 2013 with customers delighted by how the software was even easier to use while allowing them to get so much out of it. We are committed to keeping Farm Matters current! Unlike most farm software available our interface and technologies are modern and easy to use straight from download. We were the first farm software provider in the UK to freely allow downloading of our software and pride ourselves on our open and honest approach to business.
