UK Farmer Group Discussion Network
Welcome to the UK Farmer Group Discussion Network website.
Here you can find out some background information about the Network and how
to contact us.
Please note this website is pretty basic in nature as we prefer to spend our
time and resources working with our farmer members 'on-the-ground'.
We hope, however, the information gives you an introductory flavor of
what we are trying to achieve.
What is the Network?
We are looking for farming discussion groups to take part in a national debate on the big topics affecting farming today.
Whether your group exists to buy and sell produce; share technology; or trial new breeds and ideas, we would like to hear from you.
UK Farming is set to face one of the most significant periods of uncertainty in recent times. Our aim is to promote open discussion within and between grass-roots local farming groups to enable farmers to debate and consider the big topics such as post-Brexit market conditions, future farming grants, food supply chain dynamics, public education, new technologies and much more.
Starting in England in 2018, we already have over 70 farmer groups on board across the UK. The aim during 2020 and beyond is to expand the Network in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland as well as continue to grow the membership in England.
Established and newly formed farmer discussion groups can take part. We believe these small, local groups are the best place to kick-start an on-going national discussion within the farming industry.
