Farmers can have a consultant review their business and offer advice – and it’s free.

Over 1,000 farmers have signed up for AHDB’s Farm Business Review.

The service offers free advice to agricultural businesses in England most affected by the move away from the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS).

The Farm Business Review, funded by Defra’s Future Farming Resilience Fund, is open to farmers, dairy farmers and ranchers until June 2022.

Eligible farmers are urged to register early to ensure they don’t miss out on this free help.


Steve Dunkley, Business Resilience Manager at AHDB, said: “Registering for the Farm Business Review is a simple online process that only takes a few minutes.

“Once you have registered, you will be matched with a suitable consultant, who will schedule a mutually agreed date to visit your farm and conduct a free, confidential consultation to help you assess your options going forward.

“The service is available to all farmers, dairy farmers and ranchers in England.

“If you don’t have an email address or internet access, but still want this support, you can sign up through another family member who is part of the company. agricultural.”

Wiltshire dairy and arable farmer Peter Shallcross said: “Many farmers are in the same position of uncertainty, with many unsure how they will recoup the losses presented by the abandonment of direct payments.

“The service is fantastic and will help many farmers and growers break down and identify specific areas they need to work on to ensure their businesses succeed and thrive over the next difficult years.”
