Your Farming Future
Are you in receipt of Direct Payments? Would you like some help and support with the agricultural transition?
The Your Farming Future programme is helping farmers and land managers prepare for the agricultural transition and build farm businesses that will work for you and future generations. The programme supports the integration of resilience into all aspects of farming systems, looking at agroecological land-management, shortening supply chains, and resilient financial practices.
This programme is being run by the Landworkers’ Alliance in collaboration with the Pasture Fed Livestock Association and Organic Research Centre. The following support is available for FREE to farmers:
FARMER TO FARMER WEBINARS – weekly webinars to help you learn more about how you transition your farm to a more sustainable future.

The webinars also provide a crucial space for farmers to meet, and be supported in building peer-to-peer networks.
