Working together

Innovative Farmers is made up of people like you. A growing group of progressive farmers and advisors; working together to tackle the stark challenges which farming faces.

The network brings together farming organisations from across the industry, and is backed by businesses and researchers who see the vital importance of innovation by farmers.

Innovative Farmers is part of the Duchy Future Farming Programme, funded by the Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation through the sales of Waitrose Duchy Organic products. The network is backed by a team from LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming), Innovation for Agriculture, the Organic Research Centre and the Soil Association.

The programme is advised by an independent steering group of scientists and farmers. Its members review applications to our research fund. The members are: Prof Charles Godfray (chair), Prof Tim Benton, Sam Durham, Prof Maggie Gill, Prof Erik Millstone, Dr Michel Pimbert, Prof Nigel Scollan, Ian Tolhurst, Dr Belinda Clarke and Dr Angela Karp.
