Exploring the advantages when it comes to farm diversification

There are many advantages when it comes to farm diversification, in particular making your business more resilient, sustainable, and profitable. Diversification brings its own opportunities and challenges which we will discuss in this free session.

The workshop will allow you to take a step back from the day to day and explore what farm diversification can mean for your business as well as looking at examples of how it has worked for others and how to research your ideas.

We’ll consider to how balance any diversification activities with your farm business and explore funding and grant options such as the Farming Innovation Programme.

 

Here’s an overview of what this FREE session will cover:

  • What does farm diversification mean?
  • What can it bring to your farm business?
  • How do projects work in practice – lessons learned by others
  • Researching your business idea
  • Diversification strategy, opportunities, challenges and threats
  • Planning your new project
  • Balancing new ventures with the existing farm business
  • Funding options to finance diversification
