Diversification

Increasingly, farmers and landowners are looking into diversification to maximise the potential of their property and land. As a multi-disciplinary firm, our agents can assist at every step of the process.

Whether you are considering diversification of a whole farm or as a side project, it can create a viable proposition for land or buildings, and establish a new income stream for a business. Often seen as a way of future-proofing for the next generation, our agents can help turn a seed of thought into a reality.

As a multi-disciplinary firm, we can draw on the extensive knowledge of our in-house valuerssurveyorsplanners, and finance experts to assist with the planning permission, budgets and forecasts, sourcing and applications for grants and funding, through the design and project managing construction of your project. Where applicable, our agents can also assist with the renting out of residential or commercial developments.
