If selected, farmer's visit could be fully-funded up to a maximum of £4,000.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about new or improved ways of working in the farm or forestry sectors in Europe, to find out about different approaches to business management and to broaden your knowledge, technical ability and management expertise,” said Einir Davies, Development & Mentoring Manager at Farming Connect.

Applicants must be registered with Farming Connect, and those who feel they would benefit from a visit to a farm or forestry business within the EU, or who would be interested in hosting a suitably trained and experienced farm or forest manager at their holding can apply via the Farming Connect website up until 1st July.
