Maximise your farm income
Many farmers want to improve the resilience of their business by innovating or diversifying – but the level of investment required can be daunting.
Setting up a farm diversification is a good way to protect the future of your business with an extra income stream and gain a range of benefits which you don't often find in traditional farming.
This information and ideas event provides an opportunity to find out more about LEADER, hear from local farmers who have successfully undertaken diversification projects and talk to Farm Advisory Service and National Council of Rural Advisors. We can fill you in on the funding opportunities that you could be taking advantage of and you will be able to find out the latest criteria and timeline, as well as get expert advice and guidance.
