Social Farming can provide farmers with diversification opportunities …

A quote from Dr. Ann Derwin, Chief Economist, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine who spoke and attended the Conference in Belfast yesterday.

“This integration between agriculture and social activities can provide farmers with diversification opportunities and potential new sources of income and can also enhance the image and perception of agriculture in public opinion. It can also benefit other members of farm families by enabling them to develop and utilise important interpersonal skills such as communication and mentoring”.
