Princes Countryside Fund Farm Resilience Programme- Bakewell Group

We were delighted to be asked to coordinate the first year of the Prince of Wales Countryside Fund Farm Resilience Programme during 2017

The programme to the form of a series of five workshops that were provided free of charge to a group of local farmers

they benefitted from advice and practical activities from five major rural consultancies and have chosen to continue meeting and learning together.

The group meet at each others farms to share good practice and inspire each other, during November we have met at Matlock Meadows at Masson Farm Snitterton  where local farmer Mick Dakin showed us around his fantastic Ice Cream Parlour.

 

In May 2018  we had succession training with Heather Wildman – if you missed this session it will be repeated in the SW peak on Dec 6th  2018 ring for details

In June we met with  agronomist  Dave Lievesley at James and Cheryl Frosts Farm near Monyash for a fantastic insight into soil and food at an elemental level

We are keen to see new members join this group so please give us a call for more information  01629 810903

October 4th 2018 the fund  saw  our last alumni session which was an inspiring marketing session with  Tori and Bens Farm from Melbourne.
