Aspects of Land – Autumn 2016

Farming remains the mainstay of the rural economy and society benefits if farms can run viable businesses.

Our last Aspects of Land went to press in the final weeks of the referendum campaign and I invited our readers to pause and reflect upon the sort of future we want for our countryside – whatever the result.

In the event, the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU: a decision that poses challenges for the rural economy, but also opportunities. I am confident in the ability of rural businesses to seize these opportunities; however, there must be a framework in place that allows them to do this.
