Don’t expect cfps from the host farm unless this has been pre-arranged and unless the group make their cfps available to the host farm. Doing your cfp can be a passport into other farm businesses but the information must be treated as highly confidential and shared equally between everyone.
All information and discussion must be kept highly confidential and not discussed with third parties outside the Discussion Group.
A "thank you” at the end of the day is very important. The host business has given up time to allow you onto their farm. Remember it is always a privilege to see inside another farm business. A small gift although not obligatory is often appreciated by the host farm family. Especially if a cup of tea has been prepared for the visitors.
Please notify your Consultant/Facilitator of visits being organised. LIC can help with farm contacts and other groups may wish to join in.
