The reports brings together the findings from the two phases of the evaluation offering a review of the delivery of farming connect and its impact on farmers and farm businesses.
This is the latest release in the series: Evaluation of the knowledge transfer, innovation and advisory services programme
- The programme has performed well and is ‘well known’, ‘trusted’ and ‘well respected’ in the sector in Wales.
- The range of support and flexibility offered by the programme was positive and enabled engagement with farmers with varying needs and varying capacity.
- Engagement with the programme has been good with Farming Connect engaging with a large number of farm businesses. There are however questions around whether future support should focus on more in depth support with fewer farm businesses.
- Farming connect plays an important role in creating the foundations for change in supported farm businesses. It is leading to small scale incremental changes that are, on aggregate, having a positive contribution to the agricultural sector.
