This is the second year of this group and will build on the success of the previous year. Farming can be a lonely profession and the group provides an ideal opportunity for organic farmers and those thinking of going organic to meet and exchange ideas, learn from each other and current research.

During this first year we introduced the idea of benchmarking and how important it can be in improving business performance. The group has filled a gap and is well supported, making a positive difference and improving efficiency and performance of organic farming businesses and those thinking of going organic. It is supported by both SOPA and the Scottish Soil Association.
