UK, May 14, 2012, 11:45 am — /EPR NETWORK/ — The National Trust has announced that one year on from the launch of its innovative and award-winning MyFarm project, the charity is dropping the £30 sign-up fee in a bid to widen its success and inspire even more people to engage with farming and food.
The National Trust has announced that a 250 acre conventional farm is set to become part of the MyFarm* experiment which aims to reconnect people with where their food comes from.
The farmland will form a key part of MyFarm project which enables members to make decisions on what happens on the farm.
The National Trust has revealed that members of the public will decide which flock of sheep will be bought by a working, commercial farm as part of the MyFarm* experiment which aims to re-connect people with the day-to-day realities of farming.
Under the banner ‘You choose the Ewes’, subscribers signed up for the experiment will be asked to choose between buying 100 commercial or rare breed sheep**, to expand the current flock.
The National Trust is looking for up to 10,000 people to take part in a mass on-line public farming experiment where they will make key decisions at one of the Trust’s working farms at Wimpole in Cambridgeshire.
The MyFarm experiment aims to connect thousands of people with how food is produced by giving them a greater say in how a real working farm is run.
The Wimpole Farm Manager, Richard Morris, will set monthly options for the 10,000 Farmers, who will debate and vote on issues including whether to grow wheat, barley or oats as part of the autumn sowing, through to which animals to buy and rear.
A new social media site specifically set up for connecting farms and communities was launched a few days ago.
http://www.FarmConnect.net allows farms and those interested in telling agriculture’s important stories to get their own blog, create groups and discussion forums that are either public, private(by invitation only), or hidden (only viewable to invited members).
Farms who might have been daunted by getting their own website can easily set up a group with their farm name and easily keep in touch with friends, family, and their community.
