Our Service

Following registration to the service, farm businesses will receive a FREE half day business review.

The on-farm business review is the cornerstone of our Farm Business Advice Service. Our Farm Business Consultants review your business with you and discuss your goals for the next five to ten years. The report that follows includes an action plan and sets out any barriers to achieving a profitable and sustainable business.

As part of the review, businesses will have the choice to either focus on their financial performance or on the opportunities that the SFI and other environmental schemes can provide.

The review also identifies any follow-on consultancy support that is needed. This specialist support is also funded, and delivered via a mixture of one-to-one or group services in one of thirteen business areas.
