The UK’s rural industries are changing rapidly. Many traditional farms and estates are diversifying to generate new and innovative sources of revenue, while newer, smaller businesses that need only a broadband connection are choosing to base themselves in rural locations.
Over the past 40 years, our client base has developed into a rich tapestry of the traditional and the modern – businesses that often work hand-in-hand to sustain a family farm or estate. From vineyards to care farms, we don’t just understand the insurance requirements of today’s cutting-edge rural enterprises; many of our experts have first-hand experience of rural businesses and are passionate about rural affairs.
With access to more markets than most brokers, we are able to offer highly competitive premiums and policy terms, with a full range of associated products to tailor an insurance package to a clients needs.
As changes and challenges occur in the countryside, stirring opportunities and threats in equal measure, we always take an innovative and flexible approach to insurance and risk management to enable our clients to plan for the unpredictable.
