100 Ways to Farm Stock-Free


Compiled by Rebecca Knowles

Whether due to future financial uncertainty, concerns over climate change, or wanting to be a step ahead of changing consumer preferences – the time to shift to stock-free farming is now!  

We’ve put together 100 stock-free initiatives to either supplement farm income, or to try something completely new. According to the Scottish Government, farms that diversify beyond traditional agricultural practices have incomes around £19,600 per year higher than farms that don’t. Quite an incentive!

All our suggestions are Scotland-friendly so take a look, explore the links, get in touch with questions or to request support, and let us know if we’ve missed any!
