Looking forward to the Okehampton Show!

6th August 2021

It’s time for Dartmoor’s biggest and best agricultural show of the year! On Thursday 12th August, we will be thrilled to be at the Okehampton Show and see all that our incredible local businesses have to offer. From trade stands from across Devon showcasing everything you need in a modern lifestyle, along with exhibits demonstrating just how important agriculture is as an industry—we’re sure this event won’t disappoint.

On the day of our show, we will be running a special competition for one lucky person to win their very own hot tub! As this is the only event that we are attending this year, your chances at winning have never been better. To enter, and for some light refreshments, come and find us -you won’t regret it!

Our Okehampton office has been buzzing with activity since the last show with a move to new our premises at 9 Red Lion Yard, Okehampton and we are settling in to our new space well.     The Gilbert Stephens’ team has been supplying the needs of farmers and landowners for generations.  We love being able to come together at the Okehampton Show, a time-honoured tradition that brings people from all over Devon – including us!

As a firm we understand the pressures of rural communities and we are well-placed to give practical, realistic advice.   Many farmers and landowners wish to consider diversifying their business so as to maximise the potential of their land.  It is important that proper advice is taken on all the factors that need to be considered such as tax consequences, planning requirements, National Park consent and legal consents.

As a result of ever-changing agricultural policy, farmers are experiencing many rapid developments. They must keep pace with a wide range of changes such as reforms in CAP, the impact of planning and environmental policy and reforms to the law of agricultural holdings. There is also the ever present need to arrange their affairs in a tax efficient manner.

You can read more about how we can help you here.

We are very excited to be exhibiting at the Okehampton Show, if you’re in the area, we hope that you will stop by our stand and say hello! One of our team members can tell you more about what we do or answer any questions you may have. If there’s anything we can do before then, don’t hesitate to call or email us.
