Agriculture And Auctions

Bentons offer a friendly and experienced Agricultural department, providing all year around support to farmers and land owners. We assist the local and wider farming community with all Agricultural matters.

In addition to our main office, we have a further busy office at the Melton Mowbray Cattle Market, which provides support and advice to local farmers on current issues arising in the farming sector which can be discussed and then followed up with one to one meetings either at the office or the farm. The office at the market is open on Tuesday mornings. We welcome new and old clients with refreshments and a friendly atmosphere.

James and the team regularly meet with clients to ensure their business is able to continue to grow and be successful. Over the years, Bentons Agricultural department has developed a strong client basis we look to meet clients annually to complete Stock Taking Valuations and cover any issues which may have arisen over the year.

Agriculture Team

Overseeing the Agriculture team is James Sealy BSc. (Hons) MRICS FAAV FLAA who has vast experience in the sector and until recently was also selling livestock at Melton Mowbray Cattle Market.
