Are you looking to diversify your existing farm business? Are you looking for something a little different from the norm? Here are some ideas to get you thinking when it comes to the livestock and cropping industries.
An important factor to consider with these ideas is your audience. And is there a demand for what you are growing or producing?
Having gone from a traditional family farming business to one of the leading biodegradable confetti producers in the UK, we hear from Shropshire Petals Marketing Manager Ashley Corrigan how the business has gone from strength to strength.
An inquisitive mind and a noticeable growing demand for the end-product led Chris Dickinson to start his own goat meat business from the mixed family farm in Penrith, Cumbria.
Having grown up with goats at home, it was no surprise to his family that on his return to the farm after working for the NFU for six years, Chris wanted to start-up his own venture with goats.
The desire to start an organic business drove Jan Billington to move her young family from London to South West England in 2002. But needless to say, what they were going to do when they got there and how they were going to make it work were unknown factors at the time.
However, their flexible approach to business and innovation alongside their hard work and dedication has meant they have established the successful, British edible flower business, Maddocks Farm Organics.
