We are delighted to be acting as a delivery partner for Prince Charles’ Countryside Fund. The programme recognises the importance of family farm businesses to both rural communities and the economy and is designed to enhance their viability through a series of business skills workshops and assistance in developing a future plan for their family business.
The landscape of the AONB has been created and maintained by the endeavours of generations of farmers and landowners and it is the current generation that maintains the landscape that we all love. Our involvement will assist these businesses to continue this work into the future.
We were asked to get 15 to 20 small to medium-sized family farms to sign up to the Programme. Our 20 farms started their training on November 6th and have been supported by East Devon District Council, who have made the East Devon Business Centre at Honiton available to the group for this business training. Local sponsorship for the delivery of the workshops is also being sought on behalf of the group (contact email@example.com for more details).
