Farming Grant and Funding Opportunities

Please find below the list of grants and funding opportunities from a range of UK organisations that may be of interest to farmers. We aim to give an overview of agricultural grants. This can at least ensure that if you are a farmer, you don’t lose out on the common types of funding.

The Common Agricultural Policy (“CAP”) is a system of agricultural subsidies and programmes covering farming, environmental measures and rural development. The CAP continues to provide support payments to farmers and landowners, primarily by way of Direct Payments and Rural Development (Environmental Stewardship) support.

New schemes implemented in 2015 are intended to change the way the EU supports its farm sector by removing the link between subsidies and production of specific crops. This reform focuses on consumers and taxpayers, while ideally giving farmers the freedom to produce what the market wanted. 

The current scheme guidance includes
Basic Payment and the Rural Development Programme
