Since 2015, the Farming Connect Our Farms network, with support from sector specific industry experts, have been trialling and implementing more efficient, sustainable and profitable ways of managing their businesses.

The network includes 15 farms across Wales who will run trials and projects focusing on innovation and new technologies to help them and other Welsh farms reach net zero by 2050, and to build both resilience and sustainability amid a changing climate.
