I’m pleased to say you can now apply for a Slurry Infrastructure grant. In this round, Round 2, £74 million of grant funding is available. This is more than double the funding available in Round 1. With more funding available, we’d strongly encourage everyone who wants to improve their slurry storage to apply for a grant.
On Monday 20 November, we hosted a webinar for livestock and grassland farmers to learn more about the funding opportunities available in England. The webinar focused on the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) and the Animal Health and Welfare Pathway.
In this film, we return to Aqualate Mere in Staffordshire to learn more about the tests and trials experience of Aqualate Castle Holdings. Farmers in the catchment share what they learned about blending public and private finance for greater environmental good. They focused on commercial agreements between private organisations and local farmers.
On 13 October, we held a webinar on the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) for organic farmers and growers in partnership with the English Organic Forum. In this post, you'll find a link to a recording of the webinar.
Hedgerows store carbon, support crop pollinators, create habitats for animals, slow water flow and create shade and fodder for animals. We want to protect the hedges we have, invest in their maintenance and support further planting. We also want to make sure that hedgerow regulations work for wildlife, the environment and farmers. Today we launched a consultation on hedgerow protections in England and we want your views.
This year, the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) offer will be bigger and more flexible. We'll start accepting applications for the new offer in a controlled rollout from August. Learn how SFI can provide a steady income, help make your farm more productive and support you to produce food sustainably.
You can now apply for a Water Management grant. In this post, I'll give a recap of the grant and the links you'll need to get started. I'll also include a video of the webinar we recently held.
We’ve shared a few blog posts on grants recently. In this post, we’ll give you a roundup of the grants on offer in 2023.
A few weeks ago, I blogged about the latest round of the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund. In my post, I gave an overview of the fund. I explained that it is made up of 2 themes. One theme is Productivity and Slurry. The other theme is Animal Health and Welfare. I’m pleased to say that you can now apply for a grant under the Productivity and Slurry theme.
The Farming Equipment and Technology Fund is part of the Farming Investment Fund. It offers grants for specific items of equipment to increase productivity, boost environmental sustainability and improve animal health and welfare. Today, we published the full list of items available through the fund. In this post, I’ll explain what is available, when you can apply for a grant and provide links for you to find out more.
