National support, local delivery, tailored to you.

We provide independent, expert advice to farm businesses of all sizes. With a network of 24 offices, we have over 100 consultants who work, live, and (in many cases) farm and croft in the areas they serve.

Our agricultural consultants have a broad knowledge of all farming and crofting enterprises and have strong connections across the wider industry. Our expertise includes farm support payment or grant schemes, NVZ (Nitrate Vulnerable Zone) and nutrient planning, or sustainable systems including managing biodiversity or carbon, with the benefit of our own accredited carbon calculator tool, Agrecalc, to offer in-depth insight and baseline emissions data.

With a focus on continuous improvement, our support aims to build long lasting sustainability for customers, our communities and encourage positive change in the industry. We want every customer to feel supported, better informed, connected, and better resourced for the future.
