“To provide family farming businesses with an enterprise solution, allowing them to thrive together by alleviating financial pressure, sharing of inputs and responsibilities to younger generations and providing freedom for the family to enjoy farming and their lives”
UK agriculture is changing. Rural businesses are having to adapt quicker than ever before, due to the loss of the Basic Payment Scheme, Brexit, increasingly volatile markets and social demographics such as the rise of veganism. The very nature of farming reduces the ability to dedicate time and resources to creating new income streams, which are now vital to rural businesses.
The subsidy support model within British agriculture is being phased out. We understand this is daunting and realise the anxiety caused when considering other income options. As 2027 draws closer, it is vital for farms to ensure they are financially viable without the same level of government support.
Due to the seasonality, workload and time pressured nature of agriculture, it can be difficult for a rural business manager or owner to find adequate time and resource to complete a project. Often things are started and progress well, only to be placed on hold due to existing workloads. This often leads to delays in project delivery, additional expenditure and poor performance. This only gets worse when a diversification project is complex and has time constraints (planning applications etc.).
Increasingly, we see farms supporting more family members, without necessarily being able to afford to employ them. This is frustrating for younger generations, which aspire to have responsibility and managerial input into the rural family business. Diversification offers more employment opportunity and income, to support expanding families.
Do you have a burning desire or idea that you feel you will never become a reality? We can make your dream enterprise or business happen!
Dudley Peverill Associates are on hand to provide the complete diversification project solution. From evaluation of resources, selection of appropriate enterprises to instruction of professionals and final implementation, we are here to help. Rural family businesses can focus on their passion, farming, secure in the knowledge that diversification projects will be managed in the background, ensuring targets are met by our friendly, compassionate and diligent team.
We want rural family businesses to thrive. Optimum utilisation of assets both within and outside of operational agriculture is paramount to reducing risk and supporting the primary business through times of adversity. Diversification will help to enable rural families to continue what they have loved doing for generations, enjoying their farm.
