Five Great Reasons to become a member

Join LEAF and save money –

LEAF members can demonstrate tangible financial and environmental benefits delivered through Integrated Farm Management (IFM). In a recent survey of LEAF members 66% of LEAF farmers agreed with the statement ‘by adopting LEAF and IFM principles we have benefited financially’, on average each farm saved £14,000 (or £40.00 per hectare).

Through adopting the LEAF Management Tools, such as the LEAF Audit and the Green Box membership will help support you in making the right business decisions for your farm and maximize the potential of your environment and natural resources.
