THE PRINCE’S FARM RESILIENCE PROGRAMME

11 June 2019

The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme offers free business skills training to family dairy and livestock farms across the UK.

Up to 300 farms can join the programme each year and participate in a series of seven workshops which focus on different business skills to maximise profitability and resilience. Topics include business planning, understanding accounts and budgeting, and exploring new opportunities for your farm.

Alongside this every farm receives one-to-one on farm support to take part in a Business Health Check Tool to look at their strengths and weaknesses and benchmark costs against similar farms.

The programme brings together like-minded farms in local groups, and gives families the tools to evaluate their viability and long-term sustainability enabling them to make informed business decisions on their future direction.

Who can join?

·        

Family farms whose main enterprise is livestock or dairy.

·        

Owner occupied and tenanted farms

·        

Conventional or organic systems

·        

Farms sign up to the programme as a family business and the whole family are invited to get involved.

The programme is not suitable for hobby farms, small holdings or farms who do not have either dairy or livestock as a main enterprise. If the main enterprise is arable, please get in touch to see if the programme is suitable.
