In 2016, Innovative Farmers went from strength to strength and we were delighted to welcome Buccleuch as our brand new network sponsor.
Innovative Farmers is unique because it focuses on giving farmers the funding and practical tools to develop their own solutions. Practical ‘field labs’ provide access to funding and support to a network of farmers, driving more sustainable and resilient systems throughout the industry.
The support from Buccleuch was timely. Farmers’ capacity to innovate will be more important than ever to their survival and success, as they face an uncertain future with Brexit and the end of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
As well as making progress on the ground in 2016, policy makers have started taking notice. With the support of Buccleuch, Innovative Farmers will provide farmers with the support and professional backing they need to develop sustainable solutions to the industry’s greatest challenges.
In return for their support, Buccleuch’s sponsorship has been promoted through Soil Association’s social media channels and website, as well as on the Innovative Farmers portal, in relevant Farming press and at events. They also receive reports on the activity and reported learning by participating farmers/growers within their network.
