Farm for the Future

Farm for the Future

Do you want to better understand the policy changes that will affect the future of your farm business? 

Farm for the Future is our FREE business and environment programme which will help you tackle challenges you face and grasp the opportunities on offer linked to the agricultural transition. Our locally delivered programme will take a whole farm and family approach to help you:

  • Understand more about current policy changes and how they will affect your business.
  • Provide tools and advice to help you make changes to your business.
  • Understand how you can practically improve the management of your farmed environment.

From October 2022 to March 2025, we will deliver a flexible and engaging programme of workshops, online learning, signposting, 1:1 support, peer networking, and learning to groups of farms in 18 locations across England, as well as a virtual group in case we’re not in your area.

Please see our privacy policy for information on how we use your data.

Our programme will be delivered in your area by your local farm support group who will be able to ensure that it is relevant to you and your farm. The programme content is flexible with the option to include workshops on topics chosen by the farms in your group, and is completely free to take part in. You can either attend workshops and events in person or virtually.

Who can join:

Any farm who currently claims BPS and is not already taking part in a Defra funded resilience project is eligible to join. Our programme is most relevant to small – medium sized farms whose main enterprise is beef, sheep or dairy.

You can take part in this programme even if you have already taken part in a Royal Countryside Fund programme.
