Tonight, The Prince of Wales hosted a reception at his Highgrove home to launch The Prince's Farm Resilience Programme.

The programme aims to provide business support and one-to-one guidance to 300 family farms each year across the UK, as well as giving them the tools to evaluate their viability and long-term sustainability.

The Prince's Farm Resilience Programme will be run by The Prince’s Countryside Fund, a charity set up by The Prince in 2010 to improve the prospects of family farms and the quality of rural life.

During tonight’s reception, His Royal Highness met Ambassadors of The Prince’s Countryside Fund, including former JLS band member JB Gill, who now runs his own farm in Kent.
