The Farmer Network has received further funding from the Cumbria Growth Catalyst programme to enable us to provide free one to one advice to help farmers review their businesses.


The business health check takes around 2 hours and includes a review of the farm’s accounts, information about the proposals in the Agriculture Bill, consideration of the farm business’ strengths and weaknesses and possible opportunities for future development.


Farmer Network Project Manager, Ruth Kendal, said: “this service is about providing farmers with the information they need about the proposed changes to support payments, helping them understand what these might mean for their businesses and providing support to consider what changes may be necessary for them to survive and develop.”


For more information about the service and/or to book an appointment, please contact the Farmer Network on 01768 868615 or E mail:


Cumbria Growth Catalyst is funded by Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership utilising support from Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy.
