THE Farmer Network, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to support farmers, their families and their businesses, is expanding its operation in the Yorkshire Dales.

It is looking to employ a new part-time farm coordinator in the area to join the existing team. The role will include delivering an increasing number of farmer-support projects and also organising farmer events in the Dales.

Managing director Adam Day said: “We recognise that farmers are best- placed to deliver both future food security and improvements to the natural environment in tandem. This will require new knowledge and investment within the industry and we are preparing for this now."

Veronica Waller, senior project manager, added: “We are keen to hear from potential coordinators who can work directly with farmers across the Yorkshire Dales and be a go-to person for the farming community in those areas."
