Farmers are feeling less optimistic about the future than they did in 2014, according to a survey conducted in partnership with accountancy firm Moore and Smalley which has offices in Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale, Preston, Blackpool, Kendal, Southport and East Midlands.

The survey, undertaken at the LAMMA 2015 show, is based on interviews with over 100 farmers from across the region. For 2015, diversification is on the agenda for more farmers (up to 55% from 40% last year), including an upsurge in interest in harnessing renewable energy sources. Accountants remain the primary source of guidance for the sector.
