Family farm businesses are invited to register for The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme, run by The Prince’s Countryside Fund, from now until October 31st 2020.
Held in 15 locations across the UK each year and coordinated by local partners such as FarmCornwall and the Farmer Network, the multi-million-pound programme allows up to 20 farming families to take part in each location.
Participants receive free business skills and environmental management training worth £2000 per farm, delivered by expert consultants including Kite, the Andersons Centre, and Savills. The training helps farming families to make changes to improve their business and ensure their viability.
Derek, a farmer who took part in 2019-20, told us: “The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme allows farmers to be open and honest with others. It’s a great way for people to come together, to put your head above the parapet and own how well your business is doing, to talk things through with others in a similar situation and with the expertise of the consultants.”
Keith Halstead, Executive Director of The Prince’s Countryside Fund said: “British agriculture is undergoing its most significant change in a generation, so it is vital that farming families future-proof their business, now.
The free business skills and environmental management training provided by The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme is proven to increase confidence and help farm businesses ready themselves for change. I’d like to thank all of our programme sponsors for their support of The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme, particularly Aldi, Morrisons, and the National Trust.”
