The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme was officially unveiled by the Prince’s Countryside Fund (PCF) this week and will start recruiting farmers in September.


The new scheme aims to provide business support and one-to-one guidance to 300 farm businesses across the UK each year.

 

Success

 

Building on the success of The Prince’s Dairy Initiative, the £1.5 million, five-year programme will help farm businesses, many of them family farms, tackle issues such as lack of business skills, development of benchmarking and succession planning.


Prince Charles said: “The small farms which have been an integral part of Britain’s landscape for thousands of years are under threat.


“My Farm Resilience Programme is designed to respond to those threats by helping hard to reach, vulnerable farm businesses. It is the most far-reaching programme ever offered by my Countryside Fund.”


Farmers Guardian reported in its July 8, 2016, edition how a PCF study found the number of family farms had slumped in recent decades, with many lacking clear business plans or succession strategies.


Recruitment for the Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme will begin in September and workshops will run between December 2016 and March 2017 in locations across the UK.
