B+LNZ’s farm planning approach is designed to help you:
- ensure the sustainability and profitability of your business by adapting to climate change, understanding and managing your greenhouse gas emissions, and protecting the health of your soil, freshwater and biodiversity
- meet emerging consumer and regulatory requirements
- provide an evidence base to tell your farming story.
The modular approach allows you to initially focus on the aspects that are most important to your business and continue building your plan over time.
The first module to be launched covers the environment.
B+LNZ’s farm planning approach will be primarily delivered through workshops with a strong practical focus. If you’re interested in doing a farm planning workshop, contact your local B+LNZ Extension Manager – if you don’t have their details call 0800 BEEFLAMB (0800 233 352) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To find out more, read our B+LNZ farm planning factsheet (PDF, 827KB) which details the chapters in the environment module, how the module is delivered and some frequently asked questions.
Note – we’re looking at a range of targeted ways to deliver the Intensive Winter Grazing chapter of the farm planning approach and more information will be available soon.
