CREATING SUSTAINABLE FARM UNITS
Farming today faces multiple challenges; lower gate prices and changing subsidy regimes mean famers must be increasingly
innovative and agile if they are to make a reasonable return from their farms.
At Buccleuch, we firmly believe that, if farming is to have a sustainable future, we must work closely with farming tenants to
maximise their chances of success.
In many cases, historic farm units are not well suited to modern farming and the difference in returns between top performing and median farms can make
or break a rural business.
We have been working with a number of farming tenants – using a process we call Whole Estate Development Planning – to restructure farms in order to build competitive, sustainable, resilient units.
