A winning collaboration for a changing farming landscape

We catch up with Ben Wills from 360 Rural, about branching out to deliver a fresh, strategic approach to rural business advice, and working with Emprocom for seven years…

30 March 2022

360 Rural is a farming consultancy providing a fresh, strategic approach to rural business advice.

Launched by Ben Wills in 2021 to provide a bespoke, flexible service, he’s been working with Emprocom for seven years, now at 360 Rural and in his last post, as Head of Property and Estates at Dyson Farming.

“Emprocom managed all of the construction health and safety for Dyson Farming, which ranged from the erection of grain and potato stores, glasshouses and reservoirs to barn conversions, property renovations and new builds.’’

“Emprocom works collaboratively, in a pragmatic way. They get stuff done and work as part of the team,” he says.

Ben explains that farming is changing rapidly. “BPS is going, and new Environmental Land Management Schemes are coming in. Many farmers are looking at how they future-proof operations, and this is where we come in. We can take a good look at the business with an external perspective, maximising assets and putting a strategy in place to make investments for the future.

“Working with both 360 Rural for strategic advice and Emprocom for any health and safety management is a winning combination – tackling the risks and doing the heavy lifting so farmers can get on with what they do best,” adds Ben.
