Crofting provides more than food production; it provides high-nature value farming, appealing landscapes, a mosaic of habitats for flora and fauna, local businesses, economic and community benefits and population retention in remote areas.

Our aim in supporting this vital aspect of agriculture in Scotland is to strengthen and progress modern crofting and give crofters the advice and knowledge that will ensure that they can thrive. Many of our advisors are crofters themselves and understand the crofting systems and challenges through their own experiences. 

In all the crofting communities, SAC Consulting has a team of local, independent advisors who are well verse in the many aspects of crofting. Services such as business planning, agricultural support payment scheme applications, crofting registration, sheep records, Agri-Environment and Climate Scheme (AECS) and Crofting and Agricultural Grant Scheme (CAGS) applications are very popular throughout the communities we operate in throughout Scotland. We also work closely with the Crofting Commission and the Scottish Government's Rural Payments and Inspections Division (SGRPID) so that we know what lies ahead. Whatever you need, we're here for you.
