The role of farmer peer-to-peer learning: to learn more about this initiative see our website.


The ELMS Test & Trial, based on peer-to-peer learning is a fantastic opportunity to help shape policy and build a positive, resilient future for farming. It offers a highly collaborative experience with free support and mentoring to help farmers implement more sustainable, resilient farming through Integrated Farm Management (IFM). The project will play an important role in helping inform the role of peer-to-peer learning in Defra policy for ELMS

If you are interested in receiving free advice and support, to help implement more resilient, sustainable farming through IFM, visit the website for more details.
If you are a progressive, LEAF Marque certified farmer, you could be part of the project mentoring others. If you feel you have a lot to offer other farmers and are keen to participate in peer-to-peer networking, see the Industry Leading Farmer application form for details.


Generous remuneration for your time will be provided.
