Do you want to see money invested in researching fairer, safer, more environmentally-friendly ways to farm?
We do. That’s why we’ve set up Innovative Farmers; to support innovation from the ground up.
With a changing climate and a growing population farming needs bright new ideas to provide good food for our future. It’s up to us to decide where those ideas come from.
Farmers are constantly innovating. Trialling, testing and improving the way they farm; bright ideas are part of what they do. Innovative Farmers supports groups of farmers to carry out practical, on-farm research and then to amplify their findings by sharing them with the farming world.
Through innovative farmers one bright idea can have a big impact on the future of farming.
