Farm Cluster Project
Tuesday 29 August 2023 - 16:00 to 17:30


Are you intrigued by the potential of collaboration at landscape scale?

Join us for this exciting online discussion about our new report and its findings - “Collaboration at landscape scale: Farmer Clusters in Scotland Project Report”. 

We will delve into the key ingredients for a successful farmer cluster, the potential barriers and solutions and the opportunities for new clusters in Scotland.

We have some brilliant speakers lined up to explore the theme:

  • Katherine Sharp (of Achpopuli Farm and facilitator of the Glen Urquhart Farmer Cluster) will be speaking of the highs, lows and learnings of setting up a new cluster.
  • Fred Swift (a South Clunes Farm member and facilitator of the West Loch Ness Farmer Cluster) will be sharing his experience of a successful and well-establised cluster.
  • Richard Lockett (of Lockett Agri-Environmental and contributing author of the report) will be exploring the wider context and exciting opportunities offered by the farm cluster concept.
  • Alistair Trail (of SAC Consulting) will be talking about the support available for producer collaborations via HIE's Food & Drink TechHUB.

We're looking forward to a lively Q&A session after our speakers' pieces to connect and discuss.

Join the conversation and explore how the farm cluster concept can benefit you and your area!
