Securing a sustainable future for your farm business
Welcome to Transition - a new initiative from Farmers Weekly aimed at securing a sustainable future for your farm business.
British farmers stand on the cusp of a new agricultural revolution. Farmers are expected to do much more than produce food: improving biodiversity, soil health, air and water quality, and storing carbon to help mitigate the impact of climate change.
All this means we must refocus our farms to ensure they thrive as businesses while looking after and enhancing the environment.
It is a huge journey but by pooling our knowledge here on the Transition hub – highlighting the pitfalls and sharing ideas that work – we believe we can make this transition together.
We are grateful to our Transition Farmers and to our Transition Partners who have agreed to share their experiences, expertise and advice.
Working side-by-side, as an industry, our goal is the same as yours: a sustainable future for British agriculture and for your farm business.
