The Latest Farm Grants Update

19 June - 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Update on grants and funding schemes available to farming businesses

This free workshop provides up-to-date information to farmers aiming to build farm business resilience and profitability. We review how new and existing funding schemes, such as the Sustainable Farming Incentive and Countryside Stewardship, have changed, and how those schemes could apply to your farm and build your business. We also outline other schemes and grants that may apply to your farm.

Join us to discuss:

  • How funding is changing and what farmers can do to mitigate these changes​
  • What DEFRA’s Environmental Land Management Schemes, including SFI, offer
  • What other grant schemes are available
  • Succession: how to start planning for the next generation
  • Where to go next: getting ongoing support and information ​

The Future Farming Resilience Fund is funded by Defra to support farmers and land managers through the biggest changes in farm support for generations, as BPS ends and new environmental schemes are launched. The support is free and available until December 2024 to any farmer or land manager in Devon, Dorset, Somerset or Cornwall with more than 5ha of land and an SBI.
