Cashflow crisis

ALTHOUGH I work in finance, we are just starting a smallholding in Warwickshire and have developed an empathy with farmers.

I am interested to know what farmers do to improve cashflow etc. in these hard times.

Do they sell assets? Remortgage? Diversify? What are the pros and cons of these and any other options?
