Cowden Care Farm (Community interest Company)

Due to local government cuts, Cowden Farm near Dorchester had to seriously shake-up the way we were operating the business; we had to change and move with the times:

We changed the business from limited to a community interest company.  This was so we could apply for funding from various available streams that can support community based projects.

However this was a massive challenge for me personally.  The funding applications I took an interest in were very time consuming and you had to have the ability to write the right answers to the questions and not get carried away.

My accountant recommended Rachel Barton to me, he spoke very highly of her and her capabilities he told me how successful she has been securing funding for several businesses and much larger companies.

I met Rachel a year ago since that time she has helped turn my specialist small rural business around.  We have gone from strength to strength and we continue to grow, not only is Rachel a Professional in what she does, she has given me the confidence and hope to continue with my business.

I would recommend Rachel to join your team every time; she is excellent in what she does and has a great sense of humour.
