Have you always wanted to work your own farm, or have the land, but not the skills? This unique course in Farming and Management will provide you with the skills needed to achieve these tasks.

Due to a number of key factors, such as cost and suitable knowledge, the people who are most likely to become farmers are those people who have been raised on or have lived on a farm. But this is not always the case, and recently there have been increasing numbers of people who are leaving urban lifestyles for a farming life.

Hobby farmers often start with a small allotment, while maintaining their mainstream work or income until they are comfortable about making a living from their "hobby". Some progress to larger properties once they have established the skills, knowledge, and financial backing to enable them to farm profitably on a larger scale.
