Farm & Rural

Our rural team is made up of multi-disciplined, fully qualified chartered surveyors. Many with rural and agricultural backgrounds and upbringings themselves. 

Working with

We work with owners, occupiers, landlords and tenants across Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire and further afield. We have been working with some of our clients’ families since our business first started 1888.

Our services

We offer the complete range of rural services. If you need a sales, rental or auction valuation for land, buildings, machinery, stock or produce, we can help you.

Equally, if you need support with diversification, planning, rural grants or subsidies, we work with clients everyday doing just this.

Whatever your question about your rural land or property, we are a very good place to start, with our breadth of experience and knowledge.

It’s all in the detail

We understand rural property and businesses, it’s our passion. We want to partner with you to get the best results possible, whatever your goal.

Our roots are in the countryside.
