Agricultural and farming businesses include the production and harvesting of crops such as wheat, cotton and maize as well as the production of livestock such as cattle, sheep and chickens. An agriculture business may include elements from growth to harvesting to processing or may be focused on a particular process such as supplying machinery or raw materials. In order to buy an existing agriculture business you should register for alerts so you are notified when a new business is listed.

A farming business can require a large investment especially if there is a freehold property, equipment, factories or processing plants involved. Determining if an Agriculture business is a good purchase will depend on a number of factors but is largely based on the profitability of the business. The ability for the business to produce a product will determine if it is a good opportunity, for example if a chicken farm can run 170,000 head of chicken, the buyer will be able to forecast the costs, and potential income, and evaluate whether the business will be a good fit for them.
