About the project

The ELMS Test & Trial offers a highly collaborative experience by investigating the role of peer-to-peer learning to help farmers implement more sustainable, resilient farming through Integrated Farm Management (IFM).

The aim is to pair up farmers seeking expert advice with an Industry-Leading Farmer (ILF) to provide free support and one-to-one mentoring.

The project will play an important role in helping inform the role of peer-to-peer learning in Defra policy for ELMS.

What's involved?

We would like you to participate in the following ways:

  • Peer-to-peer networking
  • Two face-to-face workshops – one on Friday 17th February (at Yattendon Estate, Berkshire) and a final one at the end of the project.
  • Receive or provide support to complete the LEAF Sustainable Farming Review by March 2023 and January 2024

You will receive generous financial compensation for your time.
