    Introduction to the School of Sustainable Food and Farming

    Educating, inspiring and empowering current and future farmers to achieve net zero within a sustainable farming and food system.

    It is a huge time for farming: there are so many positive steps we can do now to positively change the future.

    Our vision: educating, inspiring and empowering current and future farmers to achieve net zero within a sustainable farming and food system.

    The School of Sustainable Food and Farming (SSFF) enables farmers to understand how to produce food sustainably, expanding the industry's knowledge on the environment, animal welfare, positive farming relationships and skills at the heart of producing nutritious, tasty, British food.

    We want to equip farmers with the skills and knowledge to reach ‘net zero’, bringing this to life through training with trusted advisors. The school will be a central hub for farmers to share their understanding on sustainable farming linking with the next generation. There is the ability to ensure improved farm systems for farmers. This means a lowered emissions footprint and improved sequestration offsetting on a whole farm system approach.
