Foundation Degree in Agriculture
When Sharon Appleby decided to seize the opportunity to take over the tenancy of the family farm, she turned to Reaseheath for help.
She says: “The opportunity was too good to miss, but to take on the tenancy I have to prove that I can farm. Gaining a recognised qualification was an important criteria. The training and support I received at Reaseheath was invaluable, increasing my confidence and my ability to take a broader approach to the business.
“Our visits to farms offsite gave us an insight into how other people solve problems. The business modules were really important too. I now understand how to present business plans to people like our bank manager and farm business advisor.
“I’ve also gained a greater understanding of health and fertility issues within the herd which I can now discuss with our vet in more detail.”
