The Farming Community Network (FCN) is a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times. 

The charity has helped thousands of people deal with a variety of issues, including financial difficulties, animal disease, mental health and family disputes. With a network of over 400 volunteers across England and Wales, many of whom are involved in farming, or have close links with agriculture, the charity has a great understanding of the issues that farmers, farm workers and farming families regularly face. 

Volunteers provide free, confidential, pastoral and practical support to anyone who seeks help, regardless of whether the issue is personal or business-related. FCN also runs a confidential national helpline (03000 111 999) open 7am - 11pm every day of the year and an e-helpline (help@fcn.org.uk)

FCN's FarmWell website provides a range of free, useful information and resources around developing personal and business resilience on your farm. Through FarmWell, FCN is helping to support the farming community in planning ahead for the future and adapting to change. Visit: https://farmwell.org.uk/

Farm Fitness has rapidly become a burning beacon on the UK fitness scene, attracting spectators and participants from all over the country to come and take a swing at its almost alchemic blend of modified strongman, functional bodybuilding, calisthenics and blistering cardio efforts.

The gym, founded by farmer’s son Tom Kemp, was voted one of the best gyms in the world and 'coolest outdoor space' by Men's Health.

Tom has blended his farming background with his love of training to create a raw and exciting outdoor environment for people of all strengths and abilities to get fit.

He took a dilapidated corner of the yard at the family’s 240ha arable farm near Dunmow, used as a machinery dumping ground, and transformed it into a bespoke workspace.

Custom-made equipment sits alongside items commonly found lying around the farm, such as old tractor tyres.

The DPJ Foundation is the leading mental health charity working with the agricultural community in Wales. Established in July 2016 by farmer’s daughter Emma Picton Jones following the suicide of her Agri Contractor husband Daniel, the DPJ Foundation aims to raise awareness of mental health in rural communities and to provide support when it is needed.

“Share the Load” the DPJ Foundation’s confidential 24 hour telephone (0800 587 4262) and text (07860 048 799) line provides callers with access to Samaritans trained volunteers who will listen without judgement and who can help. Through Share the Load, callers can also get access to qualified counsellors, free of charge, within a week of their call to the service. Since being established in January 2018, Share the Load has supported over 350 callers with counselling, supporting many more just by being there when needed.

As not everyone will make a call to Share the Load, the DPJ Foundation also supports the wider rural community to help each other through bespoke agricultural Mental Health Awareness training. This enables people to spot the signs of poor mental health and to build confidence to help as well as knowing how to look after their own wellbeing.

Further details of the DPJ Foundation can be found on their website www.thedpjfoundation.co.uk.

Kubota is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of tractors and agricultural equipment and is celebrated around the world for its product quality, reliability, robustness and excellent after sales service. Kubota’s diesel engines are at the heart of its complete agricultural tractor range and they are widely regarded as being one of the best on the market. Kubota has significantly invested in growing its agricultural product range, most recently with the launch of its M6002 and M7003 Series tractors. This follows ongoing investment by Kubota Corporation in its European tractor production facility, building for reliable, versatile and higher HP machines specifically designed for the European marketplace.

Kubota’s M Series is the cleanest, most technical and powerful tractor the company has ever built. Manufactured to fulfil the stringent requirements of large-scale upland farming across European agricultural markets, it is available in 6 different models (M4, M5, M6, MGX and M7 series). The introduction of the new higher horsepower tractors marks the beginning of the next phase in the company’s continued progression up the horsepower categories, which is key to the company’s wider goal of becoming a leading brand in the sector over the next decade. The addition of the M6002 and M7003 Series complements the brand’s existing agricultural product range, which includes its M4, M5, M5 Narrow, MGX and M7 Series tractors. In addition to a comprehensive selection of Kubota-made implements and in line with its commitment to grow its agricultural division, Kubota has made some key acquisitions in the last few years, firstly with the purchase of the Kverneland Group in 2012, followed by Great Plains in 2016. Kubota's growth hasn't stopped there, in 2019 Kubota Europe established an Innovation Centre which works with external partners to create new business ventures, products, and services in the agricultural sector. This further development within Kubota shows how we are continuously striving to invest and produce solutions to everyday challenges the consumer may face.
