Registration for the Prince’s Countryside Farm Resilience Programme closing soon!

The Farm Resilience Programme which will be recommence in November 2018 in the Garvagh and Banbridge areas is aimed at dairy or beef and sheep farmers who are not currently practising benchmarking or engaged in a business development programme and who are looking at ways to improve their business and make efficiencies. Support will be provided through one to one on farm mentoring as well as a series of group workshops to be delivered by professional consultants. The workshops will focus on general business areas such as finance and business planning, making efficiencies and looking at new opportunities; as well as preparing for the future such as succession planning and change management post Brexit.

The programme will include support to look at the financial performance of your own enterprise through the use of a specially designed ‘business health check tool’. By completing the tool, it will help you to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your business. Then through the series of workshops you will be able to compare your business with others and identify ways in which you can improve your performance and create a stronger, more resilient farm business.
