ARMED FORCES ENGAGEMENT WITH THE AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY

Based on years of experience working in the agricultural industry Forces Farming are subject matter experts on how to enter agriculture and wider rural industries. We consider it extremely important that you are sure agriculture is for you and your family. Taking time to understand agriculture by learning with farmers puts you in a strong position for further steps in your career. Gaining experience is just as important as a qualification. We support this by working to a four step process focussing on providing Insight – Experience – Placement and Development to help you identify which sector of farming or the rural industry is for you.
