Family farm succession report
Did you know there are more part time farmers than full time ones? Or that there are 700 new farm management jobs each year? These facts come from caroline stanford-billington's report, released on 9 april 2009, titled 'the changing structure of agriculture and its relationship with family farm succession'. This may be of interest to you if you're considering succession issues or looking at the changing face of british farming. Given that our region consists mostly of small family farms this makes stark reading. We'd like to find out about plans for your family farm.
