We are farmers, scientists and consultants. We understand the challenges and the power of cooperation to solve them. Our impacts are well evidenced, and benefit the welfare and health of animals, the environment, business and community. 

FAI have offices in England, Norway, Brazil and the US and a regenerative farming enterprise in Oxford, UK.
