Farmer Steering Group

A recruitment process is underway to enlist 10 farmers to help shape the delivery and services of Wales’ flagship agricultural support programme.

In a period of significant change for Welsh agriculture, the Farming Connect programme is establishing a Farmer Steering Group to do everything from helping to increase engagement with the service to providing important feedback.

Among their responsibilities will be to provide feedback on the service to ensure delivery and reach are maximised and to develop strategies that promote the core objectives of the programme.

Farmers and industry stakeholders are being asked to nominate a fellow farmer with his or her approval.

The new Farming Connect Programme runs until March 31 2025, ahead of the new Sustainable Farming Scheme being introduced.

The Group will meet four times, both online and in person, and there will be a dedicated communication platform for providing feedback and exchanging ideas.

Farmers will be recruited from across Wales and from different sectors, demographic and geographical location.
