This week, Defra announced which organisations have been awarded grants to help farmers with business advice during the agricultural transition.  The scheme is designed to help farmers to understand the changes, identify how they might adapt their businesses and access support.  See Future Farming Resilience Fund Providers for more details.

We are very pleased that the Prince’s Countryside Fund (PCF) was one of the organisations awarded a grant and the Farmer Network will be acting as their delivery partner in the North of England.  Starting this autumn, the package of support delivered by the PCF programme will include a series of workshops, a business skills audit and one to one support.  For more details and to register your interest, please call the Farmer Network on 01768 868615 or email:  Veronica@thefarmernetwork.co.uk.
