Farming


Farming in the 21st Century is not only about the traditional use of land for the production of food, whether arable, animal or horticultural. For many farmers farming is also about the need to find other ways or producing additional income or growth in capital value. This may be achieved by adding additional projects to the farm such as:

  • Holiday lets
  • Opening the farm to the public
  • Use of redundant space for commercial lettings
  • Letting of paddocks for horse use
  • Solar or wind farming
  • Use of space for storage of electricity

Those are some examples of the ways in which farmers are adapting their businesses to the needs and pressures of modern farming.

Other farmers are adapting by buying or selling land so that their farming units are the correct size and mix for their requirements.

Bevirs have been involved in the farming community for many years and are able to assist in all such projects.

There is another aspect of farming in which Bevirs has particular expertise. That is the sale of land for development – whether residential or commercial. The sale of farmland can be achieved in a variety of ways including:

  • Outright sale
  • Conditional Sale Agreements
  • Uplift Provisions
  • Options
  • Joint Venture Agreements, or
  • Promotion Agreements

Some land is sold in conjunction with other farms and that involves Landowners’ Agreements or Pooling Agreements.

We believe that in respect of all projects relating to farmland we should, together with the farmer’s accountant, be involved at an early stage so that we can fully understand and advise on each project as it progresses and morphs into its final form.
