Diversifying farming

  • Often farmers cannot make enough money by growing crops or rearing livestock alone. Many farmers look to ‘diversification’ as a way of making money.

  • Farmers often open their farms as:

  • Caravan and campsites or holiday home parks

  • Golf courses

  • Pick your own fruits, e.g. strawberries

  • Farm shops and petting zoos

  • Keeping Llamas, ostriches or buffalo for ‘different’ meat

  • Opening their rivers as fishing grounds

  • Growing Christmas trees

  • Selling land for wind turbines or solar panels (solar farming)

  • Your task is to write a letter to a Mr Lancaster, a farmer near you, explaining why diversification will help him and his family make more money on their farm. You need to suggest what they should try and why. Then produce a poster/flier for their farm to give to the local community so they can support their new ideas.
