About Us


Who we are:

The Farmer Network Ltd is a not for profit company that provides help and support to farmers and their businesses. Formed in 2005, the company currently has more than 1,000 members between two network’s in Cumbria and The Yorkshire Dales. We are a friendly, grassroots farmer’s organisation with an experienced team of people used to dealing with most queries and challenges that today’s farm business can throw up. If we don’t know the answer, we will know the right person who does, through our many corporate members, sponsors and other associates. That is why we encourage all members to contact The Farmer Network as a first port of call. We’re “always here to help”!

What we do:

The Farmer Network Ltd is a unique, independent, a-political organisation that is run by farmers for farmers. We believe that farmers work best when they work together. Created by necessity during times of hardship in the years following the foot and mouth epidemic of 2001, we provide help and support to farmers where it is often most needed giving us strong connections to all farming communities.

We have considerable interaction with Government Agencies, Civil Servants and people of influence within the industry. We also have good interaction with the public as we seek to promote farming and associated benefits to the public. Our membership continues to grow year upon year.
