We are pleased to announce that we will be offering a tailored 1-to-1 farmer support service ahead of the Agricultural Transition, as part of Defra’s Future Farming Resilience Fund. The service comes at no cost to you and we are accepting applications now from the Dairy, Beef and Sheep sectors.
Outside of the EU and no longer bound by the Common Agricultural Policy, the Westminster Government has set out plans for a seven-year agricultural transition to a new system that will reward farmers for environmental improvements alongside food production on their land.
The Future Farming Resilience Fund has been developed to provide business support to farmers and land managers to help them navigate the changes over this period.
The support will be available, free of charge, from August this year through to March 2022, and farmers or land managers currently in receipt of BPS are eligible to apply. It is open to farmers in England alone but we look forward to supporting farmers in the other devolved nations of the UK in similar ways in the future.
The Westminster Government urges farmers to sign up to the scheme, which aims to deliver direct benefits to farmers and land managers by enabling them to:
- Help understand the changes that are happening as a result of the Agricultural Transition
- Identify how, what and when you may need to adapt your business model
- Access tailored support to address these changes
The lessons learned will feed into the design of a final phase which will be available from 2022-2024.
