FARM FOR THE FUTURE
CUMBRIA, YORKSHIRE DALES & NORTHUMBERLAND
The Prince’s Countryside Fund’s “Farm for the Future” is a programme of business and environmental skills support for farms to improve their resilience and prepare for the changes to agricultural policy. The programme is being funded by Defra’s Future Farm Resilience Fund (FFRF): Scale Up Phase.
The Farmer Network is looking for consultants to deliver one-to-one support focussing on the needs identified by the farmer to help them consider their options in the future.
All farmers taking part in Farm for the Future are offered 3 hours’ of 1:1 support delivered by a local consultant. The support should be focused on the needs identified by the farmer to help them consider their options for the future. This might be business advice, technical advice to improve performance, information about existing and new environmental schemes, the potential to benefit from private finance such as carbon and biodiversity net gain, apply for grants, or diversify their farm’s income streams. The session should provide clear actions for their next steps and signpost to relevant further support.
The Farmer Network is delivering the programme on behalf of the Prince’s Countryside Fund in Cumbria, the Yorkshire Dales and in South West Northumberland.
This autumn/winter we will be holding workshops in the following locations:
- Skipton in Yorkshire,
- Near Wigton and Staveley in Cumbria
- and near Haydon Bridge in Northumberland.
It is expected that the farmer participants will be from within a 30-mile radius of these workshop locations.
