Alternatives to Land Ownership – Central Region


Join us on Saturday 18th February from 10am – 1pm at Port of Menteith Village Hall (FK8 3RA) for a joint FAS and SAYFC meeting. This meeting will explore the different options available to Young Farmers and New Entrants looking to enter into Agriculture. We will hear from tenant farmer Mark Donald who will detail his journey to obtaining the tenancy on the Forestry Commission ‘starter’ farm at Rhynaclach. From small beginnings Mark now runs 300 ewes and 15 breeding cows alongside 2 contract farming operations where he manages 730 ewes and 120 breeding cows. This alongside the not inconsiderable task of chairing the NFUS regional Forth & Clyde committee representing the views of his farming colleagues.

Representatives from the Scottish Land Matching Service will also be in attendance to inform of opportunities and successes in the area. Plus Andrew Coalter, a Charted Accountant from SAC Consulting will be available to advise on business planning and finance options.

Lunch will be available.
