Welcome to the TFA of Scotland


The STFA has evolved from the Scottish Tenant Farmers Action Group which was formed in 2001 in response to the Scottish Executive’s tenancy reform proposals in the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Bill which was passed in March 2003 and has recently become law.

The Scottish Tenant Farmers Association seeks to build upon the work done by the Action Group in supporting and enhancing the position of tenants within the Scottish landlord-tenant system. It represents and advises members on all aspects of agricultural tenancy and ancillary matters.

It aims to improve the professional and technical knowledge of its members, to encourage the flow of new tenancies onto the market and to help the farming industry understand and best apply the existing and new agricultural tenancy legislation.
