FCG has a range of consultants who specialise in most aspects of UK farming and agriculture, including dairy farming consultants, livestock farming consultants, arable cropping and organisation consultants, organic farming consultant, poultry farming consultants, agricultural planning consultants and advisors on many other diversified enterprises seen on modern farming businesses.
FCG prides itself in having a strong business and planning input with its clients. While a strong technical competence is essential to running a farming enterprise, it is the business acumen of the managers that will create the profits and drive the successful enterprise forward. FCG consultants embrace both the technical and business skills required to service modern farming requirements.
Assessing business strategy is an essential part of the work we undertake. Allied to this process, FCG consultants are regularly involved both in tendering for new opportunities and in the reorganisation of the current business to obtain the best from the resources available.
FCG maintains good relationships with the agricultural banks, other professionals and service industries. Regular training and updating ensures that the consultants are up to speed with technical information and the regulatory demands of modern business. Independent thinking and the ability to explore the unusual are traits of FCG staff, with many running other businesses in their own right.
