What does the application form ask? 

 

You will be asked a series of basic questions about yourself, followed by 5 open-ended questions.  Answers to these questions are limited to 250 words, and you must answer all of them.  These questions are:

  • Please give a brief summary of your farming experience
  • Describe your greatest achievements in agriculture/aquaculture or elsewhere in your life so far
  • What are your farming goals for the - short, medium and long term?
  • Why do you want to join the Future Farmer Foundation?
  • What qualities do you have that will allow you to get the most out of the programme?
  • How you will ensure you can commit to the programme? 

 

What happens after I have submitted my application? 

 

We will look through all applications in early October.  We will then run 3 selection days in November, where we will invite a short list of applicants to come and meet us.  From this we will then select the final 50.
