PRINCE’S FARM RESILIENCE PROGRAMME
This offers FREE business skills training and advice to family farms in 15 locations across the UK each year. The Farmer Network is facilitating three new groups around Kendal, Alston and near Newcastle starting this autumn. This week we held meetings up at Slaggyford Village Hall with the Alston group, at Nafferton Farm for the Newcastle group and at Kendal for those interested in signing up to the scheme. There are a few spaces available and for more information, contact the Farmer Network office on 01768 868615 or email: Veronica@thefarmernetwork.co.uk.
