Lake District calls on farmers to help shape the future

The Lake District National Park and the National Trust has begun its venture to recruit new Farming Officers in a bid to ensure a continuation of farming’s role to ’deliver high quality food and livestock in a world class cultural landscape’.


The roles will help develop and deliver practical projects with farmers and strengthen relationships in the farming community.

 

The Lake District National Park post will work with farmers across the whole of the Lake District while the National Trust post will focus on working with National Trust tenants, who farm some 20 per cent of the area.

 

Head of strategy andpPartnerships for the Lake District National Park Liam McAleese said: “Farming has a vital part to play in the future of the National Park.

 

“We recognise there is a wealth of experience and entrepreneurialism within the Lake District farming community and we want to tap into that to help us shape the future of the rural economy.

 

“We are keen to hear from people with strong links to farming in the Lake District, and will consider applications for a range of flexible work patterns, it is important we get the right person to work effectively with a range of farmers, farming groups and businesses.”
