FarmStart Manchester is the UK’s first organic farm incubator, based on inspiring and successful models in Canada and the US, and aims to make the route into organic farming easier.
We’ve had lots of interest from other groups around the UK in our FarmStart initiative, so on 23rd May we’re holding our 3rd event to pass on what we know about setting up and running a farm business incubator! It’s open to farmers and non-farmers alike who are interested in setting up a similar programme in their area.
The day will involve taking you through:
- what is involved in setting up and running a FarmStart and how we did it;
- what’s worked and what hasn’t so well,
- the changes we’ve made along the way (and why).
Felicia from Organic Lea will also be there to make comparisons with their FarmStart programme (at Lea Valley in London).
