Welcome to the AHDB Farm Excellence network, this is where we showcase stories from the farmers and growers who make up our monitor and strategic farm network.

Here you will find the latest news and innovations, information on upcoming events and in-depth case studies from farmers explaining their journeys and decisions.

We have so many brilliant relationships with forward-thinking, innovative farmers and growers who share best practice and drive pioneering changes in agriculture and horticulture, so look out for more farms added to this site over the next few months.
