FARMER TO FARMER GROUPS
Farmer-to-farmer groups create opportunities for low-cost peer-to-peer exchange. A number of groups have been set up by LWA members in Scotland, Wales and England and we are working to develop more.
Groups generally get together at the beginning of the year to decide on who will be hosting sessions and what topics they will look at. The groups then meet up at members farms on a monthly basis to explore the topics, share experiences and look at practical examples.
Farmer-to-Farmer groups are simple to organise and do not require significant running costs. They are an effective tool for sharing experiences and driving innovation and cooperation.
