Monitor Farm 2022/26

Transformational change

The Monitor Farm Programme aims to instigate positive transformational change by encouraging innovative and sustainable farming practices on nine farms across Scotland. The programme has been designed to be a representation of Scottish farming as a whole. The Scottish agriculture sector is as varied as the people who work within it day in, day out, and the programme reflects that.


The aim of the programme is to help the selected farmers to build resilient, dynamic farms focused on reaching full economic, social, and environmental sustainability by optimising business through improving both production and profitability.

Minimising Impact

For the Future

The programme provides the farms with expert advice and will help them to embrace innovative practices to support them on the journey. The learnings will then be shared for the benefit of farmers across Scotland.
