The Farmer Network is led by farmers for the benefit of farmers. Our Management Councils consist of 10 elected farmers in both Cumbria and Yorkshire with others co-opted for their skills and experience.  The Councils meet 3 to 4 times per year to advise us on what support is needed within their local farming communities and it is also an opportunity to keep up to date with the latest developments.

We are looking to strengthen our Management Councils and would ask farmers to consider nominating themselves or others to join us either as a representative for your area or as a co-opted representative. The more support we can get at council level, the stronger we will be.  The Management Council nomination forms can be found below and there is a deadline of 15th January for nominations which will go forward to the Companies AGM's (more details next week).  If you would like more information, please contact Adam Day on 01768 868615 or e mail
