Innovative Farmers is a not for profit membership network, for farmers and growers who are running on-farm trials, on their own terms. Since 2012, we’ve launched over 120 farmer-led research projects across the UK, awarding over £450k of funding in small grants to groups of farmers, enabling them to research the issues that matter to them.
Innovative Farmers puts farmers in the driving seat of research to help speed up the adoption of agroecological farming practices in the UK. By introducing farmers and researchers to the benefits of on-farm research, they are supported to collaborate and find solutions to agricultural problems. Our overall aim is to enhance the sector’s knowledge and understanding, making the results open to all so everyone can benefit.
