Future Farmscapes is working to build stronger relationships between farmers, communities, and conservation organisations throughout the South West Peak.  

This project is supported by our Farm Link Workers (Andrew and David) who are experts in communicating the ideas of conservation and relating these concepts to the folks who live and work in the area. They are providing an essential link between our other projects, such as Slowing the Flow, Glorious Grasslands or Working for Waders (among many others) and local individuals or groups who may be interested in working with the Partnership.

For local projects that aim to improve to the appearance, environment, economy, and community of the South West Peak in general the Local Farm Grant fund may be awarded. This is a great opportunity to benefit from one or more of our on-going projects and help to improve a spot in the South West Peak that you think might need a little help.

Looking for some useful tips, tools and advice on slurry and manure management? Check out this page from our friends at the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).
