Farm Step Programme

We believe that there are many people with the enthusiasm and determination to gain the skills, tools and knowledge that will enable us to live more sustainably in future.  

Launched in 2009, Farm Step provides a once in a lifetime opportunity for people who might otherwise be locked out of farming by land price and availability to  ‘step up’ onto the first stage of farming.  

The Farm Step initiative is based on sustainable land management, where economically viable and independent businesses can thrive.  

Farm Step tenants operate independently of the Trust, but are offered land with favourable tenancy agreement terms, as well as the chance to work alongside a community of other like-minded green businesses.
