This is proven programme that gives you the tools to streamline and simplify your business while encouraging your team to be more involved and to take responsibility on farm.
FarmTune can be applied to all areas of your farm business and in the process, you will:

- have the tools to manage change positively.
FarmTune offers three programmes
- WasteHunt is the 'DIY' 6 step process to help you identify and remove some of the waste and costs from your day-to-day operation
- GetSorted helps organise the workplace for success and safety. It’s a good starting point if you are looking to see if FarmTune thinking might work in your business
- FarmTune is a comprehensive programme that supports you and your team to implement LEAN thinking through your business.
Each FarmTune course is delivered by a trained and accredited FarmTune provider. The workshops are designed to involve you and your team in a practical and hands-on format to develop a new way of thinking.
