The pig industry historically has been a major sector within UK agriculture and unlike many other sectors, is not supported by European subsidies.
We have a great deal of knowledge when it comes to market cycles and volatility affecting the UK pig sector.
With Cumbria producing more milk than any other county in England, and Dumfries & Galloway being the power house of milk production in Scotland, our expertise and office locations make us the ideal partner when it comes to assisting Dairy Farmers.
We have a specialist team to assist dairy farmers in developing their businesses to meet the challenges brought about by the ever-changing environment in which they operate.
Poultry meat production is now one of the most technically efficient agricultural sectors in the UK.
Consumption of poultry meat has increased significantly over the past 20 years. As a result a great number of our producers have made substantial capital investments in recent years, both upgrading existing facilities and expanding their output capacities.
In such a highly capitalised industry, detailed forward planning is essential to minimise future tax burdens.
Free Range Eggs
Free range egg producers are required to undertake significant up front capital investment when establishing such a unit. We can assist you in making sure these projects are undertaken tax efficiently, helping the money stay within the business. We understand the complexities of this market and are on hand to help you plan for times of fluctuating profits and investment requirements.
Beef, Sheep and Upland
Businesses involved in beef and sheep production make up a significant proportion of our agricultural client base.
We’ve looked after many of our clients for generations and understand that Environmental Schemes, especially in the more marginal areas, are becoming increasingly important in underpinning the profitability of livestock businesses.
