There are still spaces for farming families to sign up to get FREE business skills training through The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme, organised by The Prince’s Countryside Fund and delivered in South Hams.
Aimed at dairy, beef, and sheep farmers, the Programme helps farming families to make changes to improve their business – 83% of farmers said they have made greater efficiencies because of taking part, and 9 in 10 feel more confident for the future.
Comprised of a series of workshops delivered by experts, the Programme looks at topics such as practical cost management, business planning, succession and managing your farmed environment.
Nigel, a farmer from St Austell, who took part in the Programme last year said: “You get out of it what you put in. I would really like for the group to keep meeting and challenging ourselves. The group itself is a really good support network for us – just being able to talk to another farmer for ten minutes about your problems is great sometimes. My only regret is that some of us didn’t get to know each other as well as we could have.”
