Certificate In Alternative Farming VSS103

Some farms struggle though; so it's important to make wise and informed choices about what you do, and how you do it.

  • Get to know the options for your land
  • Choose to produce things that are compatible with your resources
  • Don't over extend yourself
  • Take the time to learn, plan and do each job properly

 One Advantage of this Course is that it connects you with a tutor who knows the options, has both training and experience in agriculture, and can mentor you as you learn and develop your approach to farming. Our course places a great deal of emphasis upon discovering the options, building networks and establishing a solid, scientific foundation for day to day work on a farm.
