Training project for NT tenants

The 2000 farming tenants of the National Trust are to be direct beneficiaries of a new project designed to enhance the skills and training needs of farmers.


The project, funded by a 300,000 sponsorship from Barclays bank, is intended to help farmers adapt to the farming world post decoupling.


The scheme will also aim to help new entrants.


Launched on Thursday (27 October) the two-year project will help farmers develop and share skills, knowledge and experience to meet the challenges of a new era in farming.


The lessons learned will be shared with the industry.
