Diversification

I am able to assist clients with an assessment of the potential viability of new business ventures beyond their traditional agricultural core business. I will advise on availability of  grants and compile applications for funding (formerly from the Rural Development Program for England (RDPE) and Leader) including assistance with drawing an appropriate business plan.

 

I can oversee the planning permissions required to implement the plan, find contractors, oversee the build and find suitable tenants or partners.

 

Including: Farm shops; Holiday lets; Bed & Breakfast; Office or Workshop space; Barn conversions; Open Farms; Ice cream production; Packing plants; Meat Processing, Equestrian etc.
