In this episode, Lisa Warne talks to John Renner and his son, Charlie. John farms on the border of the Northumberland National Park between Berwick-upon-Tweed and Alnwick. Charlie is a farm business consultant and continues to help out on the farm. Lisa gives an update on the growth and rollout of our environmental land management schemes. John and Charlie talk about how the new farming payments fit in with the management of their farm. They had plenty of questions for Lisa about the new grants and actions.
Lisa leads the Payments Policy team for our environmental land management schemes.
Lisa's role involves working through how farmers will be paid and how much they will be paid to deliver environmental and climate outcomes through our schemes.
