I developed my passion for farm business accounting during my role as Farm Secretary at Bridgewater College. I then undertook further education into Farm Business Bookkeeping and Accounts before joining Promar International in 2015. In my spare time I ride my horse and socialise with friends, along with caring for my 200 breeding ewes.
I have had many roles within Promar International which has enabled me to build an in depth knowledge of the company, build working relationships and provide a financial service. Previously I worked for an arable contractor. This experience helped to develop my crop and machinery knowledge. I began milking cows at age 16, whilst doing my AS […]
I was reared on a dairy farm in south Warwickshire and formally educated in Agriculture at Harper Adams University College. However, my real education for my consultancy role has come from the hundreds (if not now thousands!) of dairy farmers I have had the privilege to meet and work with over the 30 + years of my career. My satisfaction comes from helping to find solutions to the challenges of modern farming systems in sustainable ways for the farming family, the cows and the environment.
Having been with Promar International since 1984, I have a bank of knowledge that I can apply to Farm Business Accounts. In my spare time I enjoy playing cricket.
I am passionate about helping farmers to become the very best at what they do. This drives me to strive to do whatever I can, to help them achieve their goals.

“Garry Kidner is our Promar farm business consultant, he works alongside us, formulating rations, preparing budget forecasts and monitoring business performance. The FBA package is excellent for providing comparison to budget and to previous years as well as generating KPI’S for benchmarking. We regard his input as vital to our farming success.”
“Charlotte visits us once a month, to complete our VAT return for us. On this visit she ensures our accounts are up to date and accurate and prints out reports to help us to construct our forward cashflow plan. Charlotte also sends the information over to our Promar consultant Emma Thompson, who then uses the data to assist us with making management decisions, and to our accountant at the end of the year to build the base of our tax accounts. I would highly recommend Promar to anyone wanting to grow and develop their business.”

“Charlotte has been coming to us for the past 3 and a half years, she provides a highly efficient service, completing our VAT returns and year end accounts. After each monthly visit she sends the data over to our accountant so they are able to complete quarterly tax accounts. More recently Charlotte introduced us to Mark Roue who we now have as our consultant, helping us drive the business forward. Charlotte and Mark work closely together to ensure the visits are effective and that the relevant information is shared with each other.”
“We use Andrew as a sounding board for our business. He provides detailed financial assessments and projections for the business and this helps us to challenge and question our decision making at every opportunity. We would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew’s services to other farmers.”
