Diversity is the future of farming according to Farm Business Innovation. A recent survey showed that over 74% of farmers and rural business owners are more likely to diversify their land in response to Brexit. With the prospect of a 60% drop in EU subsidies as a result of Brexit, alternative income streams are a must for UK farming.
It’s certainly not all doom and gloom though, the possibilities of farm diversification are endless. From beekeeping, selling farm produce in your own deli or bakery, offering a glamping site, to creating amazing themed outdoor and indoor playscapes, there are lots of great ideas to create additional income streams for your farm/rural business. What is even more exciting is that you have an opportunity to spread your enthusiasm for farming with people living in your area and far beyond.
Why not speak to Greenspan about your farm diversification ideas? We’ve worked with a number of farms to help them develop their vision into a reality.
