Farms, Estates and Rural Land

We understand that agriculture and rural business is highly specialised, bringing its own set of unique commercial and legal challenges that are often quite distinct from those faced in other businesses.

Of course, there are all the familiar commercial pressures of running a business – but with an extra dimension that comes from operating in a rural setting.

This includes not only contending with  a range of challenges from the environment to changing consumer preferences, but also grappling with increasingly complex regulations from government with significant change on the horizon through a new subsidy regime as we leave the EU.
