Aimed particularly at professional advisers, this breakfast meeting will expand on the CLA’s recent publication “A Practical Guide to Share Farming” and discuss how the concept can be promoted in the South West.
The subject of some controversy following its launch at the Great Yorkshire Show, the CLA’s guide seeks to promote share farming as a farm business structure capable of responding to many of the challenges faced by UK agriculture.
The great benefit of this arrangement is that the parties bring different resources to the business in terms of assets, experience and abilities and so may be able to create something bigger and better than either could alone, but without being tied together in either a partnership or a tenancy, as well as possible tax advantages for the landowner.
Speakers will include:
• CLA Director of Policy & Advice, Christopher Price
• CLA Agricultural Adviser, Ed Barker
• Jeremy Moody, CAAV
• John Coyte, CLA member implementing the scheme
