Farming Connect are looking for farms and forestry businesses that may be suitable to host an exchange farmer from Wales.

Farming Connect, which delivers the knowledge transfer, innovation and advisory services of the Rural Development Programme in Wales is currently developing a new Management Exchange programme for farmers and foresters in Wales.

It will enable farmers and foresters to enhance their personal learning through exchange of knowledge with others. They are looking for a range of farm or forestry businesses in other EU member states which may be suitable to host an exchange farmer from Wales.

At this stage, no formal commitment is required, as the Farming Connect team are simply seeking expressions of interest from potential host farmers/foresters who are interested in being involved in the programme.

The intention is to create a database of interested parties, located throughout Europe, in order to match up potential exchange partners.

If your farm or forestry business would be interested please get in touch with Farming Connect directly by contacting Einir Davies or (+44) 1970 636297. For more information on Farming Connect see
