Diversification

Our reputation for advising on diversification opportunities is second to none.  We have successfully helped several hundred rural businesses identify opportunities to diversify either within or without the existing enterprise. 

Schemes have included alternative cropping, all types of renewables, alternative livestock, environmental projects, change of use to residential, commercial, horticultural, equestrian. 

We are also proud to have let over 1,000 commercial units on rural properties through our Commercial Buildings Database.  Crucially our advice takes a whole farm approach with consideration for impact on not only income and turnover but also capital taxes, succession, underlying tenancies, rates, planning, VAT, building regulations, health and safety, energy performance requirements and capital values.
