Campbell Dallas is fortunate and proud to act for a large rural client base. Our rural business is built around generations of experience and knowledge.

We recognise that as farmers and estate owners you want to deal with people who understand the rural economy. For this reason our rural team comprises many from farming family backgrounds, often educated with agriculture or rural related degrees. Many of our specialists manage their own farms and land, often passed down to them through their family.

Our rural team has a strong focus across farming, landed estates and diversification. They can work with you to deliver a local service with detailed, expert knowledge.
