Food, Farming and Countryside Commission

Field Guide for the Future

16th July 2019

The future, happening now.

This is a practical guide from the Commission's inquiries, featuring case studies of good practice and stories of change from across the UK.

It includes interviews and stories from our work around the UK, including findings from the devolved and locally led inquires in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Devon, Cumbria and Lincolnshire.

The case studies of good practice and stories of change hint at what a better future could look like.

With space to make your own notes and a discussion kit, the guide includes interviews and stories on:

  • Building health into farm businesses
  • Breaking down the stigma around mental health
  • Better public procurement
  • Carbon neutral farming
  • Peatland restoration
