Shaping the future of digital farming

Hartpury’s vision is to radically develop its 360-hectare campus to create a pioneering Digital Innovation Farm, in response to an increasingly digital world with global demand for new technology in farming – ensuring students are not just ‘industry ready’ for today but prepared for tomorrow and beyond.

Funding from GFirst LEP’s Getting Building Fund, the European Regional Development Fund and the Elizabeth Creak Charitable Trust, firmly establishes the next phase of our Digital Innovation Farm 'accelerator' initiative through Hartpury's Tech Box Park, which includes our recently launched Agri-Tech Centre.
