Do you want to understand the policy changes that will affect the future of your farm business? You can now sign up to Farm for the Future programme.
Myerscough College is now recruiting local agriculture businesses for the programme, which is coordinated by The Prince’s Countryside Fund and funded by Defra.
Through workshops and one-to-one support, the Farm for the Future programme will help those in the sector locally to better understand how the Agricultural Transition Plan will affect the future of their business. It will provide business support so farmers can manage the upcoming changes and make informed decisions about the future of their farm business, and discover opportunities with the ELM schemes that may financially and practically benefit the farm.
Any tenant or owner-occupied farm currently in receipt of BPS in England is eligible to join.
Sign up to a FREE programme of support to help you prepare your farm business for the upcoming changes, and receive the following, plus additional events and resources:
Business Workshop: Understand and prepare your farm business for the changes to agricultural policies, including the removal of BPS.
Environment Workshop: Discover environmental opportunities within the ELM schemes that may suit and benefit your farm business.
One-to-One Support: Discuss future opportunities or challenges with your local coordinator to help you plan for the future.
Am I eligible?
Any owner-occupied or tenant farm currently in receipt of BPS in England can take part.
