Our farm business plans are based on practical and informed knowledge of farming and rural activities. We work with you to help you achieve your rural business goals and ambitions.

Many of our agriculture consultants have years of experience working in government which means we can keep up to date with policies in relation to agriculture and investment support schemes. We can advise you on where funding may be available to support your business growth.

Farm diversification

For those looking to diversify their farm business, we can guide you through the process to make sure the changes are right for your farm. Options to explore can be farm or non-farm opportunities. Our farm business advisors can carry out feasibility studies, investment appraisals or marketing plans. If you require funding, we can look at suitable grants and help you with applications.

Let us help assess the impact of a new opportunity on your current farming system with regard to practical implications or areas such as tax or supply chains.

ADAS is also home to an expert planning team which can guide you through a planning application if needed.
