Farm491 is a space for innovators to grow their businesses by applying technology to growing environments. Farm491 provides high-spec facilities created to foster entrepreneurship, ideas generation, and collaboration – it includes 491 hectares of farmland for research and testing.

Farm491 is offering start up space on-site at the Royal Agricultural University’s main campus in Cirencester and at the farm-based workshops at Harnhill: affordable and flexible working environments where agritech innovators can run and grow their businesses.

Farm491 members have access to the business support and a knowledge network that includes farmers, investors and expert advisers, as well as open access to farming data. Members can test, refine and grow their propositions.

This pioneering new initiative will create a vibrant incubation environment with the potential to influence and benefit the wider agritech and food production industries.

We plan to assist over 55 new agritech companies and help them create over 200 new jobs over the next 5 years.
