Farm Business Funding: Update on Latest Grants, Schemes and SFI

24 April, 2024 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Free
Stay up to date with developments in agriculture to navigate the Agricultural Transition.

As farmers in the South West move away from Basic Payments, many have taken advantage of the free support available under the Defra-funded Future Farming Resilience scheme. With the pace of information change, however, it is both increasingly difficult and more important to stay abreast of developments in agriculture. This workshop is designed for and targeted at those who have already benefitted from personalised support under FFR, but wish to get an update on recent developments.

 

During this FREE workshop, we will discuss:

  • How ELMs, including SFI and Landscape Recovery, can fit within your farm system. In this section, we will include both practical and financial feedback and guidance from those already taking part
  • Sources of farm funding outside ELMs: in this section, we will provide a brief overview of other sources of funds and support, including CS, FiPL, REPF, Animal health and welfare schemes and woodland creation and improvement schemes
  • Preparing for the longer-term success of your farm business is essential. In this section, we’ll give you pointers for the first steps to take to review your economic situation, plan for retirement and prepare for a successful farm succession
  • What to do now: we review what further support is available under FFR and how you can access it.

This workshop is provided under the Future Farming Resilience Fund, which was funded by Defra to allow us to support farmers and land managers with Agricultural Transition.

If you have not previously registered to the FFR programme, please click here for further info and guidance on the free support available.

 

Eligibility:

The support is free for any farmer or land manager in Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Cornwall, or the Isles of Scilly currently in receipt of BPS payments, with an SBI and more than 5ha of land.
