Established in October 2003 by a group of farmers who wanted to take control of their own destiny, the Hub has grown from strength to strength and now has a membership of over 1,500 businesses. Membership is free.
The Hub is recognised as an example of best practice for practical rural delivery - listening to the needs of rural businesses and responding to them.
What does the Hub do?
The Hub works hard to help farm and rural businesses to develop innovative, profitable and market-led enterprises. It does this primarily in five key areas decided as a priority by its members, namely:-
- Rural tourism
- Bioenergy and non-food crops
- Waste management
"The Hub helps to inspire its Members to do something different, to embrace change and learn from each other."Henry Lucas, Warwickshire Rural Hub Chairman
