Our Great Escape
We are looking for business partners, collaborators, farmers, landowners…
Are you interested in exploring business opportunities with us?
Are you someone with a few acres of extra land which you want us to look after and put to good use?
For example, a farmer with land or an orchard which can be used for organic farming and a small building which we could use as or convert into a living space. Alternatively, space for putting up an eco-lodge.
We would be looking to open up a farm shop, café with daily foods on the farm or in a village or town nearby.
Are you someone with land and extra buildings which you want to make commercial use of?
For example, a landowner with buildings which could be used as commercial space (farm shop, café and / or workshops).
We are willing to turn existing buildings into a commercial space and to collaborate in some form or shape.
We love the type of farms where you have various local shops with a community feel. We would be happy to manage the space whilst running our own ventures in the available spaces; e.g. a butchers, bakery, flower shop.
Are you someone who has a building and feels it is a great business opportunity if only someone entrepreneurial would take it on?
For example, a property owner of a building which could be used commercially (e.g. previous pub, cafe, restaurant or shop).
We are happy to turn an existing space into a loving and profitable business.
Are you someone who has already dipped his / her toes into some kind of training, learning and development and sees more potential?
For example, an owner of space and already a possible demand for some kind of training like personal development and creative art and craft courses.
We can manage the organisation of your existing business and grow the portfolio further with a mix of suitable courses and programmes.
Are you interested in investing into land / or property?
For example, you and possibly a few others want to acquire old farm with land for whatever reasons.
We are happy to work something out together, consider everyone’s interests and provide a solution which benefits all of us.
Anything on your mind we haven’t thought of but which you think is worth exploring?
We are happy to get together to discuss what your ideas are, what opportunities you see and how we could possibly help make them come true.
Experienced, capable and conscientious couple are looking for their slice of rural heaven.
Can you help us? Could we help you?!
