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
