A Great Opportunity for Farm Diversification !

Thinking “farm diversification” and social farming as value-added activity for different farms in the future.
Did you know that today in other EU countries, social farming is seen as an example, not just of farm diversification, but of “multifunctionality”. That is, whilst farming is primarily about food production, the very act of farming also brings about other positive side effects and rewards. Having people in mental health recovery enjoy the farm and our countryside through the SoFAB pilot would be a positive example. Multifunctionality is the broader picture whereby farming has multiple functions, rather than just food production.
