Do you want to venture into running your own farm or forestry business someday? Do you want to scale down or take a step back from the industry? Why not consider a joint venture?

Venture is designed to match farmers and landowners who are looking to step back from the industry with new entrants looking for a way into farming. It guides people on both sides through the key steps required to find a potential business partner. An integrated package of training, mentoring, specialist advice and business support will equip participants with the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to help them achieve their goals.
