Did you know that there are a number of grants available at the moment for you to take advantage of to make improvements to your farming operations?

One of the grants available that you may be eligible for is up to £30,000 towards slurry where there is a need for it, but you haven’t had a slurry grant recently, there has been no expansion, and you aren’t in the NVZ.

If you are a new entrant, capital grant can give you up to £25,000 if you have taken over a business or started a new one within the last 5 years. (Based on 25% capital and 51% profit minimum). Rates start at 50% with an additional 10 for LFA status and 20% if you are under the age of 40)

There are also funding options available for farmers who are unsure of their options, this does cost around £300 to access but can give farmers the potential to access up to £2500. It can be used for a variety of reasons such as to complete budgets, appraisals etc.
