Farming has always had its ups and downs, but with falling BPS payments, rising input costs and changing environmental policies, it can seem harder now to plan for the future than ever before. What’s important to remember is that with change, comes opportunity, and that’s where Ceres Rural is here to help. With our extensive experience of farm management and strategic business advice, our consultants are already helping hundreds of farmers navigate the way forward this year and they could be helping you too. 

We can use our unrivalled experience and detailed analytical capabilities to assess the current performance of your business. We’ll identify its strengths and weaknesses, while also recognising the main risks and opportunities it faces. From here we can provide a clear plan of practical actions to improve resilience and take the business forward into the post-BPS world. 

The great news is we can do all this at no cost under Defra’s Future Farming Resilience Fund. Ceres Rural can offer a range of free consultancy services to any farmer or land manager who receives BPS in England, including those who have previously accessed support – see Defra’s blog all about the scheme here.

Our tailored service options include: 

  • Farm Resilience Report 
  • Carbon Audit 
  • Benchmarking Report 
  • Business Plan
  • Business Review

Access to this free advice is on a first come, first served basis and we know that demand will outstrip supply. Therefore, we urge you not to delay and register your interest via our website, by emailing futurefarming@ceresrural.co.uk or calling 01223 679679 as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you and working with you to help future-proof your business.
