Agricultural and Rural Buildings

Established in the heart of Somerset, Boon Brown has worked on many agricultural and rural sites including an extension to a cheese factory, new cattle sheds, stables and farm houses. We have also undertaken many barn and farmyard conversions, where we have been closely involved with planners and conservation officers, to achieve designs both practical and sympathetic to their context.

Traditional farm buildings make a great contribution to local distinctiveness. So where they are no longer required for their original use, they can provide a valuable opportunity for positive redevelopment. We understand it is crucial that such proposals include a design that takes account of the character, history and appearance of existing buildings, as well as the surrounding area.

Farm Diversification

Boon Brown has extensive experience working with local farmers who recognise that diversification into non-agricultural activities is vital to the continuing viability of their livelihoods.

We have both helped farmers expand their operations to ‘add value’ to their primary produce, as well as to diversify into new agricultural opportunities such as holiday accommodation and an equestrian showground.

Boon Brown has been involved in development proposals that enabled farmers to adapt to new and changing markets, comply with changing legislation and associated guidance, and become more competitive, sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Established in the heart of Somerset, Boon Brown has over the years worked on many projects on agricultural and rural sites including the extension to a cheese factory, new cattle sheds, stables and farm houses. We have also undertaken many barn and farmyard conversion projects where we have been closely involved with planners and conservation officers to achieve designs which are both sympathetic to the building and practical for modern day living.

Traditional farm buildings make a great contribution to local distinctiveness and to the character of the countryside. Where buildings are no longer required for their original use they can provide a valuable opportunity for redevelopment for positive re-use. At Boon Brown we understand it is crucial that such proposals place design at their forefront and take account of the character, history and appearance of the existing building, as well as the surrounding area.
