About Us

Brexit has prompted the biggest change to the business conditions of farmers and food producers in a generation. Our message, however, is that growth is possible. As such, Grow Yorkshire’s vision is to cultivate enterprise! We want every farming and food business in Yorkshire to be inspired and enabled to seek greater profitability from their business.

How? Well, by preparing farming and food businesses for the inevitable change ahead, spreading the message that profitability is possible, signposting available support and inspiring rural business owners with real, relatable stories of other farmers’ successes.

Grow Yorkshire brings together organisations which already offer extensive assistance to farmers and farm businesses. Through a more collaborative and coordinated approach, we’re looking to increase take up and impact of support services, identify the current and future needs of farming and food industry and secure future funding and backing from the Government to address them.

The people of Yorkshire are known for their innovative, entrepreneurial and resilient spirit; Grow Yorkshire seeks to harness that spirit and use it to cultivate enterprise. We believe that Yorkshire is the perfect place to come together, create solutions, grasp opportunities, build positive momentum and drive farm business growth.

Grow Yorkshire is supported and enabled by the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
