Full members enjoy access to a free advisory service providing independent, impartial information and advice on rural, farming and business issues from our in-house advisers.
The advice is wide-raging and comprehensive, and some of the recent queries dealt with by our advisers include: Do I need planning permission? How can I increase profits? How can I diversify? What can I do with redundant buildings? Where’s my farm payment? What do I do when faced with compulsory purchase? Which environmental legislation affects me? Are there grants available? What about inheritance tax and capital gains?
Local, county and regional lobbying activities help inform MPs, MEPs, authorities, agencies and the general public on your behalf.
Each county has a branch committee elected from the membership that ensures local concerns are addressed at the highest level.
Members enjoy a wide range of local events and activities – conferences, professional briefings, networking events, estate and farm visits and social functions.
