Sustainable Futures Report

The Sustainable Futures Report 2023 shares insights on how new entrants and next generation farmers can overcome key barriers to working in the industry.

The report, which is published by The National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs and supported by Defra and Tama, is in direct response to NFYFC’s Route to Success survey that was released earlier in 2023.

Survey figures showed more than 70% of respondents thought it would be difficult or impossible for new entrants to enter the industry.

The new report provides counter arguments to the survey findings, sharing positive examples of ways young farmers can progress their careers – as well as suggestions on how the industry needs to change to meet their needs.

Insights include those from George Dunn, Chief Executive of the Tenant Farmers’ Association (TFA) and Cameron Hughes, Land Use Policy Advisor at the CLA, as well as pieces from Oxbury Bank, Harper Adams University, the NSA, the NFU and the National Parks Partnerships, to name a few.
