 farming investment fund defra

Back in November and December we held our winter seminar series alongside Active Business Partnerships to discuss the Agricultural Transition.

Our teams discussed the new funding options available currently (some of which were only released hours before the presentation) and new schemes being rolled out in the near future.

A huge thank you to all who made the journey to Darlington, Alnwick and Hexham to attend and also to Active Business Partnerships for co-hosting the events.

Plans are in the pipeline for future events as more information is released by DEFRA and we will keep you informed of those. If you have any particular queries please don't hesitate to contact any of our rural teams.

One of the funding options discussed was the Farming Investment Fund. The Round 1 application period for this will close on 7th January 2022.
