Business Appraisal Service

Property Search


It is important that all farm businesses regularly undertake a business appraisal so that you can stand back and consider all of your options for the future.

A business appraisal provides you with a unique detailed assessment and analysis of the physical and financial performance of your farm or estate.

Our Service

The conclusions are aimed to assist with change, decision making or purely to maximise financial performance. It is normally much more productive to undertake this with an outside advisor so they can help you benchmark against other similar businesses as well as advising you on routes you may not have even considered.

At Brown&Co we have over 25 years of experience in advising farm businesses of all types and sizes and have a reputation for practical, effective advice that achieves great results. An appraisal would be led by an experienced consultant with the support of the whole of our industry leading team.
