Farm Business Consultancy

The poor economy has hit rural businesses and many are having to think outside the box to survive. Diversification projects have become increasingly common and it is said that more than half the farming businesses in England have diversified in some form and in some cases the ventures have been so successful that they have overtaken the farming income. It’s not all about tourism either, businesses are now branching out into more niche products such as essential oil crops, wildflowers, knitwear, llamas and ostriches, whilst others chose to add value to more traditional farming produce such as ice cream and cheese. With the right advice, from what started as an idea over a cup of coffee can become a feasible and achievable business venture.
