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 and e-helpline.
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.
