Who are Samco ?

Samco is a member owned co-operative, with 50 years experience in buying business inputs for farms and estates. Currently 235 members are mostly located in South Anglia, but stretch north to Scotland and west to Somerset and Cornwall.

Cost effective buying service

Samco works for its members as an extension of their farm offices to secure the best deals for members.
With one call or email members order goods such as fuels, fertilisers, feeds, seeds, sprays, building materials, spare parts, tools and tyres; as well as electricity, gas and telecommunications.


By focusing on maintaining low overheads, Samco offer some of the lowest levy charges of any co-operative group. Samco is a not-for-profit business, where any surplus not used by the group is returned to the membership.


Join us and Samco has the expertise and resources to help you maximise your purchasing power.

By working together we can look forward to farming more profitably
