Preparing for the Future

New grant funding opportunities are due to open imminently and with the phasing out of the Direct payments scheme it is important to seek professional expert advice, exposing every possible opportunity for you to capitalise and profit.

The Farming Investment Fund, which sets out to increase productivity in an environmentally sustainable way, encompasses two elements based around the Countryside Productivity Scheme; Farming Equipment and Technology Fund and Farming Transformation Fund, and is open to farming and rural business owners based in England who are involved in the production or processing of agricultural, horticultural or forestry products.

The Farming Equipment and Technology Fund will provide smaller grants to aid in improving business performance, based around the current Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme (CPSGS), with the Farming Transformation Fund supporting larger investments, the previously known Countryside Productivity Large Grant scheme.

We are expecting applications open towards the end of October and will be keeping our eyes peeled for more information with regards to eligibility criteria and confirmed application dates.

Our rural teams are focused on ensuring that your business is ready for the future. To learn more visit
