Established in 2010, Moule & Co was set up by Hannah Moule, a farmers daughter from Worcestershire. Having completed a land management degree at Harper Adams and gaining her qualifications at Worcester Livestock Market, she subsequently set up her own small mixed Rural Chartered Surveying practice, based at her parents farm in North Worcestershire.
In the early days Moule & Co was just intended as a small business serving local clients, but as time grew it became bigger and taking on more staff and offering a wider range of services. In 10 years Moule & Co grew from 20 clients to over 800.
In early 2020 we identified that we needed to split the business to separate the rural advice and the rural planning. We identified that although the name Moule & Co was locally recognisable, by getting larger and operating in new geographical areas we needed a new name that ‘does what it says on the tin’, and so The Rural Planning Co was born to enable us to better serve our existing and new clients.
The rural team continue to run our general mixed practice rural advice, such as tenancies, grant applications, property advice, valuations and so on trading as Moule & Co Rural.
Although the business has split, many of you will be familiar with the rural team and you can expect the same ethos, quality and results as we have always sought to deliver.
