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.
Bailey Hemphill is a policy advisor in Defra’s Sustainable Farming Incentive team.
Her team is part of the Environmental Land Management Programme.
Bailey and her team are responsible for developing standards for the Sustainable Farming Incentive scheme pilot.
This scheme is one of three new environmental land management schemes that will be introduced over the next few years.
Bailey is also the Environmental Land Management Programme policy lead for the Environment Bill.
