Social Farming & Innovation

As a farmer or member of a farming family, there are opportunities to both provide and gain support to feel connected. Social innovation that is tailored for and targeted at farmers offers opportunities to connect whilst promoting positive health and wellbeing. By delivering a Social Farming service, you can give time and use the farm enterprise to enable individuals with support needs to benefit from engaging in meaningful activities in a socially inclusive environment.

Farming is a way of life as well as an occupation. Feeling connected to others can be easier during some stages of farming life and more difficult in others. Loneliness and isolation can negatively impact on your health – both physical and mentally. With the opportunity to meet other farmers, you can chat about your farming experiences and feel supported by people in a similar setting. The wide-ranging skillset of farmers and their farming families, combined with the qualities offered by the farm environment can be harnessed by delivering Social Farming – a community-based service for individuals with support need.
