Shooting rights – case law update

Bank security: The benefits of landowners, banks and solicitors working together

Kerry Dovey

We all know farmers don’t like selling land to release capital. Re-financing is often the better option to raise cash to invest in your farming business.

Sarah Jordan

‘Film on a Farm’ is an outdoor cinema experience held in a beautiful rural location on a farm and while it originated in the South, it has been touring the UK this year with the hope to expand through franchise going forward.
