Toekomstboeren gives farmers for the future a voice and supports them in their struggle. Because it is not easy being a farmer: land is expensive, regulations are strict and policies more suited for large-scale industrial agriculture. That is why they focus on sharing positive examples of alternative solutions: to support their members in achieving their farming dreams, and to inspire others to do the same.
