Demo Days

Rural Enterprise Demonstration Day 26th October 2011 from Scottish Land & Estates on Vimeo.

The Rural Enterprise Demonstration Days are designed to be practical and innovative, and to showcase a range of new opportunities and ideas for rural businesses to earn additional income or to add value to existing business.

As part of a three year project, part funded by the Scottish Government’s SRDP Skills Development Scheme, these events provide a training programme for land managers and farmers across a wide spectrum of rural enterprise and diversification opportunities.

The events are not restricted to Scottish Land & Estates members and are open to those who have a rural business and wish to explore additional sources of income.

The demonstration days are organised by a dedicated Project Officer, Pat Somerville This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
