In this post, I'll provide an overview of our approach to payments for farmers taking part in the Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.
Things we're doing
Since publishing the Agricultural Transition Plan, we've been invited to join a number of panel discussions, Q&A sessions and webinars, hosted by external organisations. This post contains video links to some of those events.
Farm visits are an opportunity for farmers to tell us about the issues they are facing and to make clear the realities of farming. Due to COVID-19, physical farm visits stopped. The experience was too valuable to abandon, so we created virtual farm visits instead. Michael Sturla shares more.
Social Researcher, Hannah Baker shares how her team is working to ensure farmers’ voices are ‘on the table’ during discussions about farming policy.
We want to improve the way we set and enforce the rules for agriculture, animal welfare and the environment. We invited a people to join us in the first in a series of interactive workshops to look at the issues and share their views. In this post, Chris Dennis shares what the team learned.
