Agriculture & Rural Business

Having operated in the Agricultural & Rural sector for many years, MHA MacIntyre Hudson's clients range from family farms, operating in the livestock, dairy, arable and top fruit sectors, through to large commercial Agri businesses.

We also advise a variety of farming sector suppliers - particularly manufacturers and providers of agri-chemicals and plant & machinery - and act for a number of rural related businesses within the leisure & tourism and property sectors.

We pride ourselves on our insight into this sector. Our continued membership and involvement with  organisations such as the CLA and the Institute of Agricultural Management (IAgrM) ensures we remain up-to-date and involved with current agricultural issues and directives. Our success is founded on having a detailed knowledge of agriculture and rural businesses, linked with first hand experience and being able to retain a committed, competent team.

A national network of expertise

As the founding member of MHA – an association of independent accountancy practices – we have access to over 50 offices nationwide, ensuring national coverage. Through the association we act for over 1,000 farming and rural business clients and can boast a real insight into the financial issues and concerns of those in the agricultural sector.
