'Resilient and Ready' is an immersive, action-packed three-year programme of training, technical support and mentoring to adopt more sustainable farming and gain the skills and know-how.
LEAF and Corteva set out to work with two businesses but, after receiving a substantial number of applications, doubled the size of the initiative.
The four farms – two in Scotland and two in England – will undergo a tailored programme of training, consultancy and trials, measuring their performance and sharing their experiences with other farmers across the UK.
The Resilient and Ready farms are:
- Ben Lowe and Harriet Ross, Newseat of Dumbreck Farm, Udny, Aberdeenshire
- Craig and Claire Grant, Kindrought, Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire
- Andy Bason, Newhouse Farm, Alresford, Hampshire
- Nick Down, Yattendon Estate, Yattendon, Berkshire
The four farms were announced on 2nd March 2020. Read the full story here.
