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.
Hannah Freeman is a policy lead in Defra’s Sustainable Farming Incentive team. Her team is part of the Environmental Land Management Programme.
Hannah and her team are responsible for the early roll out of the Sustainable Farming Incentive scheme in 2022 and the expansion of the scheme between 2022 and 2024.
The scheme is one of three new environmental land management schemes that will be introduced over the next few years.
