A farming business has extended its reach from St Boswells into the north east of England by opening a new office in Hexham.

SAC Consulting has consolidated its services for local famers and rural businesses by forging a new working relationship with a leading veterinary practice and, as one of the main providers of agricultural and rural support in the Borders, now covers down to Hexham and Kendal.

“We identified the potential to use office space at Scott Mitchell Associates over 12 months ago,” explained Neil Carter, SAC Consulting regional manager.

“Its office at the thriving Tyne Green Mart in Hexham is ideally placed for us to meet clients. The potential it offers for a closer working relationship between them and our SAC Vet Services colleagues is quite exciting.”

Scott Mitchell Associates is a large, successful veterinary practice providing care to domestic pets as well as farm animals and equine.

Established in 2001, the practice has grown and now boasts a purpose-built facility on the site with 11 vets plus 25 support staff, operating 24-hours a day, seven-days a week.

This latest development is in line with a programme broadening the geographic coverage of SAC Consulting and opening services to an area extending from the St Boswells office.

Neil Carter added: “We see the Hexham mart site as a support hub for the local farming community, where farmers can get any and all support needed, and SAC Consulting working alongside Scott Mitchell Associates can supply a large proportion of that support.”
