Farm diversification - trends and opportunities

The editor of the Farm Diversity Magazine shares some new farm diversification trends. Victoria Galligan has seen a lot when it comes to farm diversification and came across some quite unique projects. Her insights can serve as inspiration to anybody aspiring to diversity their farm to add another stream of farm-based income and increase the economic resilience of their farm.

We hope this episode of the Keep Agile Keep Farming podcast will give you some ideas for what might work at your farm and points out important steps you need to consider as you embark on your farm diversification journey.
