'Farming for the Future’ Roadshow

  • Future proof your business ahead of Brexit

  • ​Access fully or part funded business and technical support

The roadshow will feature presenters such as Euryn Jones, HSBC and Wendy Jenkins, CARA and will cover an array of topics including:

  • Preparing your farm business for a future post Brexit
  • Take control – the value of effective business planning
  • Safeguard your future – personal, business and technical development

Attendance at one of the Farming for the Future events will be a requirement for any individual intending to make an application to the Welsh Government’s Farm Business Grant (FBG) which can provide a one-off grant of between £3,000 and £12,000. Farmers across Wales will be able to invest in around 70 items linked to animal health; genetics and performance; crop management; energy efficiency; resource efficiency and ICT.
