Is your family farm interested in a sustainable future?

New Models for Family Farm Succession is a pilot programme to support family farm owners who are interested in retaining farmland in food production, open to a patient process of selling to a community buyer, and are ready to start succession planning over the next year*.

If you’re a family farmer and interested in finding out more about our support offer, take a look at the information below and fill out our Expression of Interest form.

*There is no obligation to sell your farm as part of this process.
