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

Each year 15 groups of 20 farm businesses are formed across the UK, they 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 a new environmental workshop which looks at such ideas as 25 year planning, public money for public goods and ELMs.

Alongside these workshops, every farm completes the Business Health Check Tool to look at their strengths and weaknesses and benchmark costs against similar farms, as well as receiving one-to-one farm business support.

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.

If you would like to take part in The Prince's Farm Resilience Programme in 2020/2021, please email Fiona on fparker@countrysidefund.org.uk.
