Multifunctional agriculture is growing and becoming more professional. Society recognizes and acknowledges this sector and sees multifunctional agriculture as an important link between farmers and citizens. However growth of the sector can create new associated problems. Examples include increased traffic flows in rural areas and potential risks that contact between public and animals bring. In the project ‘future-orientated farms’ various design sessions were organized to generate new strategies for developing innovative solutions for these problems. Much of the developed knowledge was ultimately brought together in ‘The Worksheet of the Future’ which is a method that helps entrepreneurs to deal with the strategic and robust development of a future-proof farm.
