1418: New entrants and opportunities in farming
This paper is summarised from a report, ‘New entrants and opportunities in farming’ by Rona Amiss
Year of Publication2012
Leadership, cooperation and a strategy is needed to encourage new entrants and their successful progression. A successful exit at retirement for farmers is essential to create opportunities at all stages on that farming ladder. Farming needs to address the lack of women in the industry. There needs to be more development of a partnership approach between landowner, agent and tenant. Short term farm business tenancies are not providing favourable opportunities. County Council farm estates need more support. An informal network of mentors could prevent a crisis and give the support a business needs to be a great success.
