Who are AHDB?

We deliver transformational projects to drive productivity and boost farming and supply chain businesses. We want the industry to thrive in a rapidly changing world and continue to produce high quality food, maintain our beautiful landscape and leave a legacy for generations to come.

To cover the whole supply chain; we work with farmers, growers, packers, processers, agronomists, vets and abattoirs. This helps us unify the industry, bridge gaps in knowledge and encourage collaboration to build a stronger future for everyone.

What we do?

Each year we invest around £60m in the future of agriculture and horticulture – delivering projects that no one else would. Our work includes opening and developing markets for our farmers and growers’ products here in the UK and overseas, developing new tools and techniques through innovative Research & Development then delivering them to farmers and growers through our collaborative Knowledge Exchange programmes. We also provide independent Market Intelligence to improve business decision making and help educate the next generation of consumers and farmers.

As an industry-funded organisation, we are uniquely placed to help farmers, growers and the supply chain prepare for the changes ahead. This means helping the industry embrace new technologies, techniques and skills to become more competitive and profitable.

Charity Partner

The Farming Community Network (FCN) is a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times.

FCN has over 400 volunteers, located throughout England and Wales, many of whom are involved in farming, or have close links with agriculture and therefore have a great understanding of the issues farm workers and farming families regularly face. Our volunteers provide free, confidential, pastoral and practical support to anyone who seeks help, regardless of whether the issue is personal or business-related.

In addition to local groups of volunteers, FCN runs a confidential national helpline (03000 111 999) and e-helpline ([email protected]) which is open every day of the year from 7am-11pm.

Our volunteers will “walk with” anyone who seeks support and help them find a positive way through their problems. Each year we help approximately 6,000 people deal with a variety of issues, including financial difficulties, animal disease, mental health and family disputes.

FCN relies solely on donations and grants in order to continue supporting the farming community. With British farming facing deep uncertainty in the coming years, the workload of FCN volunteers is expected to increase significantly.
