Salter and Mckenna is made up of two partners both of which are from farming backgrounds.

Cameron Mckenna is an arable farmer currently farming around 400 acres around Sudbury, Suffolk. In a previous life he also had a suckler herd and was the Farm manager for the Thurlow Estate.

Alice Salter comes from a family farm in Lincolnshire, however since relocating to Suffolk she now has a flock of sheep which she breeds alongside her family's larger flock.

Being able to combine both their professional knowledge and also the practical experience gained from both farming backgrounds provides Salter and Mckenna with a unique perspective when advising clients.

Salter and Mckenna's unique perspective comes from combining both their professional knowledge and also the practical experience gained from both farming backgrounds. This allows Salter and Mckenna to view their work from the clients viewpoint rather than from a purely professional viewpoint, we understand that not all farms and business have the same goals and operate in the same way and we pride ourselves on being able to work well alongside each individual client.

Clients can be individuals, businesses or corporate bodies. Examples include:

  • A national rural lending firm - providing them with Red Book Valuations for Secured Lending purposes.

  • Local Charities, both assisting with general farmland management including grants and subsidy management through to project management of building works and renovation projects.

  • Providing a local landowner with a farm appraisal to ascertain areas key for diversification, looking at ways to increase annual profit and also increase long term value.

What will the blog provide?

Given that both Cameron and Alice have working farms alongside their surveying work this blog is going to provide insights from both a professional perspective and also daily farm life for both! We hope to provide not only key important information relating the farming and rural businesses and landowners but also show exactly what life on the farm is like for us.
