Braydon Forest Farm Cluster

Great news! Our application to fund our group has been accepted!
 
The RPA have granted a three year agreement to fund the Braydon Forest Farmers group.  The agreement begins in June and will allow us to hold our programme of speakers, events and visits on the farmed environment and how we can align farming business to payments available.
 
We are now developing the plan and looking at a starting point for the events. Please send your suggestions in if you have any ideas. This is your group!
 
If you are not part of our Braydon Forest Farm Cluster and would like to be, please do not hesitate to be in touch.
