Farming- a balancing act?: personal and business success

An abridged Nuffield Scholarship report on the qualities needed to develop a successful farming business.

Year of Publication2003

British farming needs to attract quality leaders, farmers and employees to continually develop. Current emphasis appears to be on the economic, production and environmental aspects, with little documentation or evidence found on the social or holistic aspects of farming. This paper seeks to address this imbalance focusing on the fundamental issue of the purpose of the farm and how the farm can be run as an integral part of a person's life rather than the person's life being determined by the farm.
