Farming for the Future
We support and enable farmers in Scotland to work with nature to build thriving, resilient businesses
We promote sustainable farming, which is:
FARMING THAT’S GOOD FOR Scotland’s environment – increasing biodiversity and supporting healthy ecosystem services, such as clean water, fertile soil and pollination.
FARMING THAT’S GOOD FOR Scotland’s rural economy – building thriving, resilient businesses that contribute to strong rural economies.
FARMING THAT’S GOOD FOR Scotland’s place in the world – transitioning towards zero carbon farming, promoting Scotland as world leader on climate change.
