Quote Of The Week

“It is very clear the impact of lower farm gate prices together with removal of support payments would render the majority of farm businesses unviable. It must therefore be concluded that by the mid-2020s a large proportion of farm businesses – 50 per cent or more is not an unreasonable estimate – will decide to cease trading” - Dr Sean Rickard, ex-NFU chief economist and Government adviser on farming in a no-deal Brexit

Brexit Prep Tip

Timber prices are at historically high levels, but in 2018 less than 60 per cent of woodlands in England and Wales were in active management. Can Brexit encourage more farmers to make the most of woodlands and provide a new and steady source of income?
Woodlands are unique in that they offer both short-term income from annual management and longer-term streams from harvesting. They are also likely to form a key element of Defra’s ambitions for the Environmental Land Management system.
There are a number of tax benefits to woodland, whether commercial or non-commercial, but part of a farming enterprise.
There are grants and templates available to help create a forward-looking plan which outlines the productive potential of your woodlands and enables the granting of licences for you to actively manage woodlands over the next 10 years.
Matthew Taylor, CLA land use adviser – forestry and woodland
