The first Resilient & Ready farmers

Four farms joined the Resilient and Ready programme in 2019, completing three years of training and mentoring to be launched as LEAF demonstration farms and industry leaders in sustainable agriculture.

The four farms – two in Scotland and two in England – participated in a tailored programme of training, consultancy and trials, measuring their performance and sharing their experiences with other farmers across the UK.
