Succession Planning (Postponed- date tbc)
Passing on the farming operation can be an emotional and difficult process. It is one of the biggest challenges that a family in business must cope with and planning for success is essential.
Succession planning can help protect your assets, your business and your family. With the changes that lie ahead in farming, now is a good time to start those conversations and make sure you and yours are able to plan ahead for success.
This online session will be led by Christine Malseed, an Accredited Facilitator offering independent, confidential solutions to family succession planning.

Drop in Desk (currently unavailable)
We have a drop-in computer desk with internet access and printer available for Dartmoor farmers to use at the Dartmoor Hill Farm Project office. In some cases we can book computer trainers to help you with a particular programme or aspect of IT that will help your farm business.
Farmers can borrow one of our two FECPAKs (Faecal Egg Count Packs) for 3 months to see how you get on with checking the worm burden of your sheep on farm. A Payment of £30 is needed and you get the support of a farmer mentor to show you how to set it up and use it.
