Farming Connect - helping you drive your business forward

Our enhanced programme is providing support which is transforming the business prospects of thousands of farmers and foresters.

Many services are fully funded, others are subsidised by up to 80%

To benefit from all that’s now on offer, you will need to register for the programme. Individuals registered under the previous programme will need to re-register.  

Check the eligibility criteria, which has now been widened to include more farmers and foresters with smaller holdings, new categories of self-employed contractors and food businesses. 

With our support you could:

  • benefit from subsidised business support, tailored to your business needs
  • reduce outputs and increase efficiency across all areas of your business
  • benchmark your performance and work towards progress and growth
  • identify areas for improvement and find solutions to problems
  • develop your skills as part of our new continuing professional development/lifelong learning programme
  • keep up to date with the latest innovations in technology through industry developments and the latest research projects
  • share best practice and benefit from the knowledge of other farmers, industry experts and academic research
  • be inspired by new ideas and find more efficient and innovative ways of working
