East Devon AONB Partnership is delighted to be partnering with The Prince’s Countryside Fund to deliver The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme.
The aim of the programme is to support family farm businesses to improve their confidence, efficiency and resilience. An added bonus of the programme is that it brings together like minded small- to medium- sized family farm enterprises in local networks, to help them review their current activity and identify opportunities and improvements that can be made on-farm to build resilience, and to help sustain a diverse farming sector in the UK.
The Programme structure comprises of a series of group workshops and one-on-one meetings with local co-ordinators. A key feature of the Programme is the Business Health Check Tool, an entry-level benchmarking tool designed to demonstrate the benefits of improved record keeping on farm, and allow anonymised comparison against similar businesses.
Interested in taking part?
The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme is being run in the East Devon AONB area and is open to family farms whose main enterprise is livestock or dairy. Many of the farms who participate are mixed, with more than one on-farm enterprise, including diversification to help bring in an additional income. The programme is relevant to both owner occupied and tenanted farms, on conventional or organic systems. Farms sign up to the programme as a family business and the whole family are invited to attend workshops.
