Rural Business Support - Diversification

Farm Diversification

The Scottish Government recognises that farm diversification is a means for farmers to widen and strengthen the economic base of their businesses and contribute to a more diversified rural economy.

The range of possible enterprises is only limited by the market and the resources of the business. The need to respond to market demand is also likely to mean that successful projects will provide benefits, improve access to or widen the available range of services and facilities in the local community as well as the wider population.
