The Farmer Network are managing two groups of the Princes Farm Resilience Programme in Cumbria (Kirkby Stephen) and Yorkshire Dales (Swaledale).
The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme was launched by HRH The Prince of Wales in July 2016 and over a five-year period will support up to 1,300 farm businesses through a programme of one-to-one support and business workshops. The programme brings together like minded family farm enterprises in local networks, to review their current activity and identify improvements and opportunities that can be made on-farm to build resilience and help sustain a diverse farming sector in the UK. The Prince's Farm Resilience Programme gives farming families the tools to evaluate their viability and long-term sustainability, enabling them to make informed business decisions on their future direction.
