The Farmer Network, run by farmers for farmers, has 1,142 members. The NGO provides advice and support to farm businesses on a range of challenges and queries faced by them such as developing sustainable farming practices, maximising income in rural communities and raising the profile of farming in general.
What we love about it:
Any platform that is about shared learnings, in this case farmer-to-farmer peer support, is what food citizenship is all about!
