Welcome to FARM & MORE 2015
More than half of the UK’s farmers have already diversified their farming businesses. There are some 4,000 farm shops, most with cafe or restaurant. To this add farmers’ markets and food markets, pick-your-own, artisan foods production, bakeries and butcheries; wedding venues, meeting facilities, food and music festivals, adventure, accommodation - glamping and camping - education and more.
FARM DIVERSIFICATION INSPIRATION for farmers, landowners, farm shops, farmers’ markets, producers and more...
It’s a real alternative to corporate Britain, increasingly appreciated by consumers who want new and different experiences, and to be involved. The movement is fuelled by massive, unprecedented networking; communities today are local, national and international, based on shared interests and passions. The opportunities for farmers, landowners and food producers have never been so good, or so many.
