Aspects of Land - Summer 2015

Green and pleasant – why looking after the environment is looking after your business

When people talk about looking after a farm or estate, I wonder how often they realise just how diverse a job that can be.

There are many different areas to care for, from the wider environment to the welfare of employees and the profitability of the different businesses within the enterprise. Savills recent merger with Smiths Gore puts us in a better position than ever to advise farmers and landowners on these matters – some of which you can read about in this publication. As always, if there’s anything you’d like to find out more about, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

You can read Aspects of Land Summer 2015 online for free, or read four extracts from the publication below.
