With a distinguished history going back over 160 years, Carter Jonas is a trusted partner to many farm and estate owners, providing expert advice on how best to manage their rural business and land assets.

We have over 1,300,000 acres of the UK countryside under our stewardship and, as such, are a major force in rural asset management.

Today our teams adopt cutting-edge technology alongside tried and tested practices to deliver the highest standards of professional service and independent property advice.

We’ve come a long way since we were first established in 1855, but the progressive stewardship of landed estates and rural business ventures is still very much central to our mission.

Our experience in rural asset management, which has evolved over our 160-year history, enables us to offer specialist advice – from planning to renewable energy and beyond – all under one roof.
