Countryside Stewardship is now open for applications for
agreements to commence from 1st January 2020.
There are a wide range of options available under both the Mid Tier and Higher schemes that would work well for many farms, with very small changes to farming practices. Options include both capital works and payments for ongoing Environmental management.
With the uncertainty around subsidy and grant payments after Brexit, now is the time to sign up for a Countryside Stewardship scheme to provide some stability on grant payments for the next 5 years.
Full details of the schemes available can be found at https://bit.ly/2XeSV1h
If you would like to discuss the options available to you, or if you need any assistance with the application, please contact Sam.
Application packs must be requested by 31 March for the Higher Tier, or 31 May for the Mid Tier scheme.
