Farmers and Landowners

Welcome to the Curlew Country Farmers Facilitation Fund page

Whilst COVID-19 restrictions persist we cannot hold training events as planned. Instead, we have set up this area of our website to help you prepare for the changes ahead. Here you will find films, articles, quizzes, links and other resources to browse. Our films are homemade and bite-sized so that they can be watched simply and quickly as many times as you wish.

Facilitation Funding was designed to support land managers working together towards local natural environment at landscape scale. Curlew Country recognises that farm business resilience is a key part of the process and our training films, articles and events will reflect this. Many of you have expressed the wish to carry out more environmental work on your farm and some of you have asked for very specific knowledge. Please keep the requests coming in, so that we can prioritise the most popular ideas.

The overall aim is to help you keep ahead of the game through:

    • Understanding the mechanisms for change and what the possible changes might be
    • Knowing how to adapt to the changes in a positive way that delivers for the environment whilst keeping your business thriving
    • Giving you more skills and knowledge to achieve this
