Farming Community Network


FCN has strong and longstanding links with the farming community and agriculture throughout England and Wales. Their volunteers are all farmers or are associated with farming and understand the problems facing agriculture today. The FCN  understands how interconnected the farm business and household are and have helped thousands of farmers with problems or issues with health, farm, business and health.

Our Devon FCN co-ordinator is Colin Smallacombe.

If you would like a talk at your church on the work of the FCN, pastoral care of the farming community and the issues facing farmers today, please contact Colin Smallacombe.
