Agricultural accountants

Maynard Johns; it’s a family thing

Based on family values Maynard Johns is definitely not your run of the mill accountants. Our approach is an open and honest method of explaining your agricultural accounts and business issues face to face, in a jargon-free style, which sets us apart from other agricultural accountants. We recognise that farming is not just a business, but a way of life.

Our personal service allows us to develop close working relationships which help manage the business demands placed on farmers. We do all this while recognising the impact these decisions often have on the family as a whole.
