Stuart joined the Rural Professional team at Halls in 2016, having previously spent time working in Derbyshire, Staffordshire and South Shropshire as a senior rural surveyor. Having been born and raised in the Shrewsbury area he was keen to move home to pursue his career and has since become an integral part of the team. Although he enjoys a variety of work, Stuart’s specialities lie in agricultural tenancy work, grant applications and rural planning. As a full member of the British Institute of Agricultural Consultants he is also the go to man for farm budgets, tenancy applications and contract farming arrangements and is the preferred choice for those looking for a professional who understands the farmer/tenant’s perspective. As a second string to his bow, Stuart is also an experienced Auctioneer, selling the calves on a weekly basis at Shrewsbury Livestock Market and machinery at the regular Kidderminster and Shrewsbury Machinery Sales. He is particularly partial to a good Farm Dispersal Sale and takes great pride in ensuring that the sales he is involved with run without fault.
