Trainer Spotlight: OnFARM Academy

OnFARM Academy was launched in January 2020 by it’s creator, Anna Davies. OnFARM stands for Food, Agriculture and Rural Matters. The academy has been designed by rural business, for rural business. Anna’s original company is ‘Seen and Herd’, a full-service marketing communications agency. Through her work and connections there, she understood that not all businesses and organisations can afford personalised bespoke training and that the majority of available online training was not tailored towards rural business. This is where the idea of creating OnFARM academy came from.

OnFARM offer a wide range of courses such as how to take better pictures and manage your social media accounts. The training is all from a rural perspective by experts in the field. They offer a course on storytelling within your business and the importance that it brings to your PR. The course is designed to help you engage with potential customers and encourage their loyalty. At the end of the course, you are left with a workbook to help you put the training into practice. They also provide a course called mental health awareness in rural businesses for £65. It has been designed to help owners and employees understand the need of their team. All of their courses are online so can be done at a time that suits you. They understand that spare time is hard to find when you are running a rural business! Aside to their training courses they even have a few free sessions! Simply create an account with them and get started.

All of the courses they offer have been created to help give the rural industry a louder voice. In addition to their training, they also create popular podcasts that you can find on Spotify, Apple and Google podcasts for free. They are all about food, farming, and rural life from Scotland and beyond. They release new episodes every Monday and they are presented by Anna herself as well as Ross Montague, a director at seen and herd. So, if you don’t run rural business and require any training, but are interested in the industry then check out their podcasts as there is something for everyone.

We are proud to list all of their course on our website and we really hope that you check them out - just click here!
