About us

fieldmargin makes easy to use software for farmers to help them to manage their business. Our goal is to make it straight-forward for farmers to keep good farm records by bringing all the information they need into one place to help make better farming decisions.

Our story

fieldmargin originated from the frustrations of founder, Mark, with the outdated farming software that was available when he took over his family’s farming business in Hertfordshire, UK. With his background in software development he knew he could make something better…

As he and the team started looking at how things were done on the farm they noticed how all conversations revolved around a farm map. Whether planning rotations, talking about work or drawing on problem areas. That’s why the fieldmargin app has mapping and visual information at its core.

Since our start in 2014 we have been continually improving the app; adding features based on what our users, farmers, said they wanted and always prioritising keeping the app simple and easy to use.

Today, thousands of farmers around the world use fieldmargin to manage their business, from Australia to Zimbabwe. Farmer feedback is at the core of everything we build.

What makes us different?

  • Farmer-focused
  • Design and ease-of-use led
  • Independent
