Having worked on thousands of projects across every inhabited continent, Regrarians Ltd. is the world’s leading farm planning company. The Regrarians Works Pattern is up to a 17 step process that has been perfected over our 26 years in the Regenerative Agriculture & Living industry. We follow this process depending on your critical & self-determined needs. We have a complete set of forms and workflows available for you to fill in and follow if you choose to work with us. Following is a summary of all of the workflow steps.
Before contacting us, please read carefully through our Trading Conditions. and then write to us about your project and desired outcomes. We will respond with a project proposal (phased, if necessary). If you agree with our proposal, we can then proceed with the next steps within our working pattern.
2. Join the Regrarians Workplace
All farm planning liaisons must be members of the Regrarians Workplace in order to contract us for this service. With email being invented in the 1970’s — whilst still useful — it is completely inferior to our highly integrated Regrarians Workplace platform. We have spent over 2 years developing the Regrarians Workplace platform to meet the needs of the community of people we liaise with. As a small team we are always working to be as efficient and effective as possible in serving the widest possible number of people — the Regrarians Workplace is our primary tool to achieve this context and any variations from this only diminishes our core capacity.
