Our work in Scotland

We have two innovative farming programmes currently running in Scotland:

Future Proofing Scotland's Farming

This £200,000 three year project, Future Proofing Scotland’s Farming, aims to prepare agricultural businesses for the impacts, opportunities and risks that both climate and economic change bring. It will be delivered by Soil Association Scotland and is being funded by the Scottish Government’s Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP) skills development and Quality Meat Scotland.

Scotland's Farming Innovation Network

Scotland’s Farming Innovation Network is a new £200,000 three year initiative, which aims to inform and inspire farmers and growers to implement best management practices for sustainable and profitable agriculture based on organic, low-input and low carbon principles. It will be delivered by Soil Association Scotland and is funded by the Scottish Government’s Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP) skills development with co-funding from Forestry Commission Scotland, Duchy Originals Future Farming Programme and Zero Waste Scotland.
