Ensuring the viability of upland farmers, so that they can continue as producers of food and stewards of these valuable natural resources has been an ongoing concern for policy-makers, public bodies, businesses, charities, rural communities and environmental groups. The purpose of the ‘challenges facing farmers’ project - undertaken by Oxfam partners Rose Regeneration and Upper Teesdale Agricultural Support Services - was to consider the issues facing upland farmers in Teesdale, the livelihood strategies that they implement to maintain or increase their income and the organisations that support them in ameliorating some of the financial difficulties that they face. The project took an in-depth look at the lives of 20 individual farmers, the majority of them in the tenanted sector.
