The Farmer Network has created The Farm Labour Emergency Support Scheme (FLESS). This is designed to help farm businesses in need of emergency farm labour during the coronavirus pandemic. The scheme seeks to help farmers in Cumbria and The Yorkshire Dales locate and secure the services of emergency farm workers to undertake essential keyworker tasks. We are now creating a register of potential emergency farm workers.

The Farmer Network is urging all farmers to create an coronavirus emergency contingency plan for their business. A template is also included on the link below as a starting point for farmers.
