The Family Farm's Sustainability and Profitability Through Joint Venture Farming

Currently researching for Scholarship

My personal experience creating a Joint Venture at home has lead to a vested interest in finding alternatives to increase the viability of the family farms here in the UK. Joint ventures can open a world of opportunities for a family farm, enabling access to machinery and expertise that may otherwise not be available to them. There is also potential to dramatically reduce finance, depreciation & labour costs. However I have found there seems to be a huge stigma surrounding collaboration that I believe needs to be addressed. We are all in the industry together because we have a passion for sustainable agriculture and with an ever-challenging industry we need to look closer to home for support.
