Innovative Farmers turns 10!

It has been a decade working with farmers to test and consolidate the concept of ’field labs’ - on-farm trials –; now the model is firmly entering the mainstream. We have learnt as much about the process of co-design as we have from the results of the 120-plus trials we have supported along the way and we would love to share on-farm lessons (some hypotheses are still being tested!) with you!

Join us in celebrating these ten years of farmer-led research by coming to any of the many events we will organise during the year in farms across the UK. Keep an eye on this page for monthly updates and information about how to participate!

In the meantime, you can explore our field lab pages or click here to read our 2022 Field Lab Journal to learn about current field labs, their design and goals.
