Rural Business Support

We understand their needs and the challenges they face, and recognise they must be able to get help and support in a range of different ways.

Our members own and manage more than 250 different types of rural businesses and as the problems they encounter are diverse, we offer an equally diverse range of support.

Through our professional advisers, members have access to free advice on all general aspects of the rural economy ensuring that they can take advantage of business opportunities when they arise.

Through the CLA, members get networking opportunities enabling them to reach the key landowning and rural communities.

You can meet these individuals at national and regional events. To find out more, visit Events or contact your regional office.

For advertising rates and details, please email Mark Brown at Fellows Media or call him on 01242 259249.

CLA membership also allows you to share ideas and exchange experiences with similar businesses in other parts of the country, as well as in your own region, allowing you to learn what works best in practice.

Members are also welcome to utilise the meeting room facilities at CLA’s head office in London. Call 0207 235 0511 for details.

All membershave access to CLA Member Services.

Members running businesses will be particularly interested in the arrangements we have negotiated on insurance, utilities, financial planning and currency risk management among others.
