Drop in for free advice

The Developing Income events programme has been designed to help businesses which are targeting income growth as a response to CAP reform.

There will be a wealth of information covering three key routes to business sustainability – expansion of conventional farming, grasping new business opportunities and developing environmental income.

The events will feature presentations, guides, workbooks, case studies and displays.

And free advice will be on-hand. Each event will feature a panel of industry professionals who have been hand-picked to provide one-to-one advice that is relevant to farming and business in your area.

You will have access to professionals, from land agents to benchmarking experts, accountants to solicitors, the Caravan Club to wind-farming specialists.

You will be able to speak to people who know how to take advantage of the many opportunities thrown up by policy reform and market change.
