Central Business Finance, Ghafar Family, Redditch

A family of successful retailers have turned their sights to poultry farming after buying a Redditch farm.

The Ghafar Family, have purchased Moorefield Farm, Redditch thanks to Central Business Finance, a Midlands-based, independent FCA approved finance broker, who secured over a million pound funding package to purchase the farm and create five new jobs.

Moorefield Farm is the first agricultural business for The Ghafar Family.

Larry Ghafar, Farm Manager at Moorefield Farm says says: “Opening our first poultry farm here in Alvechurch is a dream come true. We have always wanted to swap sides from retailer to producer and thanks to the team at Central Finance we can now commence our new journey.

“Opening and managing a poultry farm is no easy task and that in itself has been challenging, but rewarding.  Understanding business finance and accessing the right funding package was crucial to purchasing the Moorefield Farm. Accessing finance for entrepreneurs and small businesses isn’t easy, but Central Business Finance came recommended and has a strong record of supporting small and growing businesses like ours, and I was keen to get them on board.”

Chris Brown, Director, Central Business Finance, adds; “Seeing Moorefield Farm open and ready for business under the proud owners Mr & Mrs Ghafar and their two sons is a great accomplishment.  Supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses achieve growth across the Midlands and seeing Moorefield Farm hatch from concept to completion is a privilege  – not to mention see the creation of 5 new jobs for the area!”

Larry added: “Central Business Finance took the time to understand our goals and objectives, our ideas, our desire to provide wholesome poultry produce, invest in the agricultural sector and our growth plans; and more importantly how we can achieve them. Their ability to understand and navigate complex funding options has ultimately taken away many late nights of form filling and more importantly gave us the time to dedicate our approach to farming, meet new customers and start recruiting.”
