‘As farmers ourselves we know the issues that your business faces.’


Land is at the core of what we do, most of our clients own it or occupy it whether as landlord, owner occupier or tenant and there are a huge variety of issues to consider when managing agricultural land, control, flexibility, risk, tax, grants, subsidies, cross compliance, staff, animal welfare, quality assurance, health & safety to name but a few.

‘Farming has never been so volatile, and who knows what the future holds, the best advice we can give is step back, take stock, understand what you want, discuss your ideas and try to build a solid foundation for the future’

By discussing these issues with you we can help identify the best management regime for your property. There are plenty of pitfalls and numerous opportunities out there and we are here to help guide your business through these in the hope that your profits improve, your risks are reduced and your enjoyment is maximised, after all, who doesn’t want that?

Client Testimonials

Anthony Myatt

James has provided expert support to the Environment Agency on a wide range of Environment Agency flood defence projects in the North East over the last 15 years. He is very knowledgeable on the issues and challenges we face in respect of estates and land issues. His input has been invaluable to ensuring that those who are affected by our works are fairly treated but not to the detriment of the public purse.

I would thoroughly recommend engaging with James and look forward to working with him again in the future.

I worked with James on a recent forestry project (Spring 2015) that had a number of objectives.

  • To improve the existing woods
  • To address poor access and fencing
  • To improve the shooting
  • To apply for grants to try and achieve those objectives.

James is an outstanding communicator, he is sympathetic and understands the countryside and he is very knowledgeable when it comes to the grant process. He managed our project and has put in a real infrastructure that will serve the Estate well for years to come.
