Agritourism monitor farm programme

Two farming families are being sought to become Scotland's next agritourism monitor farmers.

If you're interested in finding out more, the new agritourism monitor farm programme will launch at Briarlands Farm, Blairdrummond, by Stirling on 28 January from 3 to 6pm. Anyone with an interest in farming, rural tourism and food and drink is invited to the launch event.

You'll be able to find out more about what's involved in the programme, whether you're interested in becoming the monitor farmer of being part of the groups who attend each meeting.

Several of the businesses who benefited from the last agritourism monitor programme will be speaking about the positive impact taking part made on business growth and profitability including Duncan and Murray McConchie from Laggan Farm in Dumfries and Galloway, Claire Fleming from Peel Farm and Kim Cameron from The Gin Bothy.

One of the new agritourism monitor farms will be in the East Central area of Scotland and one in the West.  Although the monitor farmers must come from within one of these areas, those attending the meetings can come from anywhere in Scotland.
