Agricultural Advisors in Organic Farming

The Minister for Land Use and Biodiversity, Senator Pippa Hackett announced an investment of €150,000 by her department in continuing to upskill Agricultural Consultants Association (ACA) advisors in organic farming.

This programme builds on funding provided in 2022 which enabled over 100 ACA advisors to attend training, receive the support of an organic specialist, and host successful farm walks; and ultimately proved to be very effective in assisting record numbers of farmers making the switch to organic farming.

The increased level of support provided in 2023 will ensure a second specialist advisor is appointed by the ACA, as well as ensuring nationwide advisory support is in place for those farmers who are interested in joining the organic farming scheme.
