Helping farmers, their families and their businesses to navigate the Agricultural Transition.

Life after BPS – SFI, ELMS, Stewardship & Grants
An open joint workshop with Mitchells Chartered Accountants

With the change in farming support moving away from the Basic Payment Scheme there will be grants available towards environmental improvement, animal health and welfare, and reducing carbon emissions.

The Future Farming Resilience Fund has been funded by Defra to allow us to support farmers and land managers with this transition. The support is free for any farmer or land manager currently in receipt of BPS payments.

Mitchells Chartered Accountants will be giving an introduction before the full presentation by Rupert Cox, FFR Farm Business Advisor, covering:

  • Introducing the support to replace Basic Payment and timelines.
  • Information on the Sustainable Farming Incentive Scheme (SFI)
  • Other Environmental Land Management Schemes (ELMs)
  • Farming In Protected Landscapes (AONB)
  • Wessex Water-funded programmes
  • DEFRA-funded grants
  • Woodland Grant Support
  • Somerset’s Rural Prosperity Fund
  • Q&A and closing remarks from Mitchells Chartered Accountants

You will also get the opportunity to sign up to get additional support through the Future Farm Resilience program including one to one on farm visits and advice.

Timings:

  • 7pm – Arrival, tea, coffee & refreshments
  • 7.30pm – Workshop starts
  • 9.30pm – Q&A and close
