If you want to progress your farming career the Tesco Future Farmer Foundation will provide you with loads of useful support to build your confidence, knowledge and motivation to succeed.
These are the key elements of the programme:
A problem shared is a problem halved
You also get the chance to join ambitious young farmers at exactly that same stage of their career as you. Because of this they are likely to be facing exactly the same opportunities, challenges, hopes and fears as you are. The friendships future farmers make and the knowledge they share is one of the most rewarding aspects of being on the programme.
The Foundation has been established to help bright, talented, determined young people make their own start in the world of agriculture, whether that’s taking over the family farm, embarking on a new business venture, or entering the industry for the first time.
We recognise that a forward looking, dyanmic and successful farming industry is essential to meet the needs of our customers. That is why we are pleased to back this initiative and encourage young farmers to apply.
A place on the programme will give you leadership training, business planning advice, mentoring, and supply chain experience. You also have the opportunity to look beyond our shores at farming in other countries.
Our second intake of Future Farmers are now well underway on the programme, and their 12 month journey of training, building their network and supply chain experience. To find out more about some of them, click here.
We will start to recruit our third intake of Future Farmers this June. The application process is really straightforward, you just need to answer a few simple questions about yourself and
tell us why you would like to take part. If you'd like to register your interest in taking part in the scheme please click here
Best of luck,
The Tesco Agriculture Team
