Transforming agri-business across Wales. Farming Connect provides farm and forestry businesses in Wales with support, advice, guidance and training on both one-to-one and group basis. Many services are fully funded, others are subsidised by up to 80% for eligible businesses.


“With the price of wool entirely dependent on the breed of sheep, thanks to the fully-funded support and guidance which we accessed through Agrisgôp, I believe that I’m finally driving the wool enterprise forward in a more sustainable direction and the whole family is excited for the future."

“Most importantly, early on in the process, we applied for fully funded one-to-one mentoring advice on succession planning, and that’s really why Lydia and Ed are now the proud joint owners of a new glamping pod venture which welcomed its first visitors when lockdown lifted this month."
Linda Davies
"I now have a much better understanding of how to measure and therefore improve the productivity of my business. Understanding and using accounts intelligently is critical."
