Notes to the Abbreviated Accounts for the period ended 31 January 2016

1Accounting Policies

Basis of measurement and preparation of accounts
Basis of preparing the financial statements
The company meets its day to day working capital requirements through the support of the director and she has pledged her continuing support. She therefore considers it appropriate to prepare accounts on the going concern basis. These financial statements do not include any adjustments that would result from a withdrawal of this support.

Accounting convention
The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention and in accordance with the Financial Reporting Standard for Smaller Entities (effective January 2015).

Turnover policy
Turnover represents net invoiced sales of produce, excluding value added tax.

Tangible assets depreciation policy
Depreciation is provided at the following annual rates, in order to write off each asset over its estimated useful life.

Freehold Farm & Buildings - 2% on cost
Improvements to property - 10% on cost and 5% on cost
Fixtures and fittings - straight line over 3 years
Tractors and Equipment - 20% on reducing balance

Intangible assets amortisation policy
Other intangible fixed assets
Milk Quota is written off at a rate of 10% on cost.

Valuation information and policy
Stocks are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value, after making due allowance for obsolete and slow moving items.

Other accounting policies
Deferred tax
Deferred tax is recognised in respect of all timing differences that have originated but not reversed at the balance sheet date.

Hire purchase and leasing commitments
Assets obtained under hire purchase contracts or finance leases are capitalised in the balance sheet. Those held under hire purchase contracts are depreciated over their estimated useful lives. Those held under finance leases are depreciated over their estimated useful lives or the lease term, whichever is the shorter.

The interest element of these obligations is charged to the profit and loss account over the relevant period. The capital element of the future payments is treated as a liability.

Pension costs and other post-retirement benefits
The company operates a defined contribution pension scheme. Contributions payable to the company's pension scheme are charged to the profit and loss account in the period to which they relate.

Going concern
The directors have a reasonable expectation that the company has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Thus they continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the annual financial statements.

The ultimate controlling party is the board of directors.
