  • Buying or selling a farm.
    A farm is a unique business. It can’t be bought or sold in the same way as a residential property. You may well have employer obligations to take into account, while also having to meet environmental impact assessments. We can bring together a group of specialists with first hand experience of all the issues, including property, employment, environmental and private tax, to help you buy or sell. Find out more.

Whatever your requirements, whatever your current situation, our aim is to work with you to help you grow, while protecting your current income and securing the farm for future generations.
