Agricultural Support

Our team of BIP agricultural advisors has been supporting farmers for over 30 years, offering specialist advice to all types of agricultural businesses.

Each of our agricultural advisors has experience in managing their own farm business, so they understand the unique challenges faced by farmers and land managers.

Through our funded agricultural support programmes, which are backed by local authorities and the Government, we provide free support including one-to-one advice with a dedicated advisor, and in-person and online workshops on a range of specialist topics.

In addition to our funded work, we also offer commercial agricultural support at a very competitive hourly rate. Through this commercial work, we can help you apply for government schemes (such as SFI and Countryside Stewardship), prepare appraisals to support planning applications, and complete grant applications.
