Eligibility for Mentees

Our Mentoring Programme is available to eligible farm and forestry businesses registered with Farming Connect

This includes:

  • business owners or partners
  • immediate family members such as sons, daughters, spouses and/or co-habitants
  • business owner or partner paid employees (for example, individuals on PAYE)
  • new entrants able to meet the 3ha requirement within a 3 year period

All registered farming and forestry businesses will need:

  • 3ha of registered land within Wales
  • a Customer Reference Number (CRN)
  • a Welsh County Parish Holding (CPH) number

Forest holders and specialist or niche farming systems or activities with more than 0.5 ha but below the 3 ha threshold will be judged on a case by case basis.
