About us

In August 2002 Alasdair Lowe started his own Farm and Land advisory business, mixing agri-environment schemes with training delivery and grant applications under ERDP for access to funding for training and diversification projects, and in 2007 he merged with Roy Lambourne of Lambourne Agricultural Consultants Ltd (based in Marsh Gibbon nr Bicester, Oxfordshire) to consolidate the range of consultancy and advisory services offered.

The consultancy and advisory services cover all aspects of the current Single Payment Scheme (SPS), Cross-compliance issues including the new NVZ proposals and the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE).

We also have strong links with other sectors of the industry; with marketing and added-value sections within agri-business particularly.

The benefits of this cooperation mean that the company can offer bespoke training and coaching packages to individuals or groups of farmers and landowners.

This approach is particularly successful as it uses innovative and up-to-date technology to involve the participants, which in turn leads to benchmarking opportunities for those businesses to measure their progress.

The company is also involved in helping to set up Farm Business Development groups – a sort of “self-help” group when the participants can meet and discuss, with invited specialists, the improvement that can come with introducing new ideas or methods of working within the business.

  • NFUPRO
  • P. AGRIC / IAgrM
