Given the dramatic decline in the number of dairy farms in the West County over the past few decades the majority of farms now come under the broad heading of ‘livestock farms’.

These can range from large specialist beef and sheep enterprises operating on low margins with a tight control of costs to the 100 acre remnants of former dairy farms where the semi-retired farmer is trying to make a living from some suckler cows whilst possibly living off some of the capital he has built up from the herd sale.

It is a varied sector where an understanding of farming, the vagaries of the market place and the role of the various subsidies is essential to ensuring economic survival.

Sometimes the importance of potential development land – or planning permission on semi redundant farm buildings is important.

The rural teams at Old Mill have vast experience of all these situations and many more.
