Tesco Future Farmer Foundation is the best opportunity I have had for learning within agriculture by far. Whether it is from experts or from the other people on the programme there is always something new and interesting to learn and think about.
Anyone wanting to create a bright future within the industry for themselves would benefit from being a part of the programme.
I come home from every workshop feeling motivated and optimistic about my career in farming. The topics covered are entirely relevant and the industry experts offer a unique opportunity to discuss real life situations and formulate solutions.
The supply chain events are fantastic and allow us brilliant access not only to farms and factories from all domains of the industry, but also another opportunity to talk directly to industry experts.
Through being on the Future Farmer Foundation I have a network of like-minded, ambitious young farmers that I can turn to for advice on anything from stock and staff management to succession and diversification.
The Future Farmer Foundation has been a great experience. I have gained knowledge in many areas like business planning and share-farming. It has helped me to grow my farming enterprise and develop some great relationships that will be a solid foundation for my future in the industry. I have learnt to look closer at my business and challenge every aspect of our current practice.
