How can I make sure my farm business complies with animal welfare regulations?
The Farmer Network offers a Cross Check service to members and non-members (a fee may apply) to check compliance with a range of regulation and legislation.
The Farmer Network also updates members on policy matters via a weekly email newsletter and social media.
One of the aims of North Yorkshire County Council’s Business Growth service is to simplify regulation for new businesses in their first two years. If you’re running a new farm business or diversification (within two years of starting) in the North Yorkshire County area, see here for more information (including eligibility criteria), email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01609 780780 and ask for Trading Standards’ New Business Advice service.
