Our team is made up of individuals from a rural background and who understand the day-to-day challenges
farming businesses can face.
Diversification allows a business to spread risk by investing into different markets. This could be as
simple as adding value to existing products such as a milk vending machine or meat boxes to sell directly
to consumers or moving into tourism by converting traditional buildings for holiday lets. As farm incomes
are under pressure with the phasing out of direct subsidy, new income streams will have an important role
in the future viability of rural businesses.
As part of any diversification project, there are many barriers to cross including obtaining planning
permission, arranging finance and potential tenancy matters. youngsRPS is a multidisciplinary company and
