LRSN is a volunteer-led organisation that provides pastoral and practical support to farming and rural people during periods of anxiety, stress, and problems relating to their families and businesses.

#FarmForTheFuture

We are delivering the Farm for the Future programme to help you better understand the policy changes that will affect the future of your farm business. Sign up today!

LRSN is inviting local farming and horticultural businesses to join the Farm for the Future programme, coordinated by The Prince’s Countryside Fund and funded by Defra.

The programme will help farming and horticultural businesses in Lincolnshire to better understand how the Agricultural Transition Plan will affect the future of their business. LRSN through the Farm for the Future will provide business support so farmers can manage the upcoming changes and make informed decisions about their future, and discover opportunities with the ELM (Environmental Land Management) schemes that may financially and practically benefit the farm. 

Any tenant or owner-occupied farm currently in receipt of BPS is eligible to join. For more information and to express interest in taking part please

For us, no problem is too large or too small, too complex or too simple. Whilst we do not claim to have all the answers, we can support and help people make sense of their problems, walk with them and direct them to the appropriate people and organisations to provide help
