Steps To Grow

Change is coming and we want every farming and food business in Yorkshire to be inspired and enabled to seek greater profitability from their business and take those first steps.

Get Down To Business

Stop – Take the time to really consider your business, spending time now will be cost effective in the future.

Look – Review your processes, inputs and outputs and make an informed decision if changes need to be made.

Discuss – Sit down with your family, employees, other farmers and networking groups to discuss your findings, gather their thoughts and opinions on how your business is running.  If the business is under pressure acknowledge this and make clear identification of where changes need to be made.

Consider – What is the key area for change. Is the change of a business planning, succession planning or a wellbeing nature etc.
