Agriculture Newsletter Spring 2023
We are experiencing uncertain times for agriculture and land management in the UK, with a huge number of changes and challenges that landowners and managers are having to face, from ongoing updates to funding systems to unpredictable climate and financial markets.
There are though also new and exciting opportunities emerging for this industry, and our Agriculture & Rural Estates Team at Trowers continue to support our clients to achieve their goals in this ever-evolving world. As we look to the future, we are also delighted to welcome Julia Moon, an Associate, specialising in agricultural property to strengthen our ever growing team.
As you will read in this Spring newsletter, we're turning our focus on to some key topics that we hope to continue to explore over the year ahead. In particular we will be focussing on the topic of next-generation farmers and succession planning. With the need to assess different income streams, we are also starting a new series of articles exploring alternative land use options for landowners, particularly with reference to supporting the pathway to net zero and sustainable energy production. We are looking forward to linking these issues up with the opportunities that are available to lead the way for our clients.
Continuing the theme of alternative land use, in 2023 we are delighted to sponsor the Diversification Award at the Devon Farm Business Awards again. We have the pleasure of meeting the finalists and arranging site visits to find out more about their innovative businesses ahead of the awards in May.
The awards are an opportunity to share success stories and celebrate the brilliance of farmers in Devon; a community that we are proud to be part of. Within the specialist Agriculture & Rural Estates Team we also offer expertise advising on equine law, renewable energy and telecoms. If you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Our updated team sheet is at the back of this Newsletter. We are looking forward to working with you over the year ahead and helping you achieve your goals, whatever it throws at us!
