We know farming

We were brought up on small, mixed family farms in Cornwall AND we are now farmers ourselves, so we understand all too well the strengths, weaknesses and challenges that face today’s businesses.

  • We provide expert guidance
    Our aim is to offer advice that makes farming enterprises genetically, environmentally and economically sustainable.

  • We have no hidden agenda
    We pride ourselves on being totally unbiased, independent and impartial. We have no product to sell, apart from our own knowledge.

  • We help you ensure your profitability
    We want to see farms managed in a way that ensures their profitability in an ever-changing and increasingly volatile industry.
