Future Farming Programme

Farmers are currently seeing the biggest changes in agriculture for more than 50 years. As a mutual insurer, we’ve stood by South West farmers since 1903 and through our Future Farming Programme, we are helping our Members and the wider farming community navigate the changes ahead in this transformative time.

We’re also offering Cornish Mutual Young Farmer Bursaries to support the training and development of young people entering the industry.
