The Future Farming Resilience Fund provides business support to farmers and land managers during the early years of the agricultural transition. Recently, we published a list of the suppliers and how you can access support. In this video, 3 farmers share their experience.
We ran some co-design workshops in November with farmers and other experts to help us work out how the regulatory system needs to change. We shared the outputs of that work on the blog. After those workshops, we began planning the next phase of our co-design work on regulation. I’d like to share our progress in this post.
We've named the 19 organisations who will provide free business support to farmers and land managers. In this post, I'll share their details so farmers can get in touch.
In this post I’ll provide a summary of what will be on offer through the Sustainable Farming Incentive scheme and what we’re doing ahead of opening the scheme up to farmers next year.
In this blog post, I’ll share how we have worked with the farming community to develop the standards for the Sustainable Farming Incentive from 2021.
Last week, I wrote a post about the importance of England’s Protected Landscapes – our National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Today, I’m pleased to tell you about the new Defra-funded Farming in Protected Landscapes programme, which will be open for applications from next month.
Agricultural shows bring people together: to network, to do business, to give the public a glimpse into farming life. We are preparing to attend 8 shows this summer, here are the details.
One of the areas we’re looking at is how much advice and guidance farmers and land managers might need in our new schemes. We’ve got 43 tests and trials exploring this and in this post we’ll share the latest findings.
You might remember that in the Agricultural Transition Plan, we mentioned the introduction of a Farming in Protected Landscapes programme. We’re preparing to release more information about that programme in the coming weeks, but before then, I wanted to share a few reasons why protected landscapes are so important.
In March, I blogged about the Future Farming Resilience Fund (FFRF). The FFRF provides business support to farmers and land managers to help them navigate the changes that are happening during the agricultural transition. I wanted to give a short update on how this work is progressing.
