Free seminar for Farmers - Register today!

Free seminar on Navigating the Agricultural Transition - Tuesday 21 September - 7 pm to 9:30 pm

Location - Halwell & Moreleigh Village Hall, Moreleigh Cross, Moreleigh. TQ9 7JQ

This event will focus on helping farmers, their families and their businesses to navigate the Agricultural Transition.

Between 2021 and 2027, the government will reduce and then stop Direct Payments. Instead, farmers will be supported to improve the environment, improve animal health and welfare, and reduce carbon emissions.. This is the biggest change in farm support for generations and all farmers need to think how they will adapt.

The Future Farming Resilience Fund has been funded by Defra to allow us to support farmers and land managers with this transition. The support is free and available from September 2021 to February 2022 to any farmer or land manager currently in receipt of BPS payments.

This FREE workshop will cover:

  • Timelines and reductions in the Basic Payment Scheme
  • Outline of the Environmental Land Management Schemes
  • The introduction of the Sustainable Farming Incentive Scheme (SFI) 2021/2022
  • How the SFI links with the Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELM's)2024
  • Options to improve productivity and increase profits as the BPS payments reduce
  • The Lump Sum Retirement Scheme
  • Business diversification strategies

Eligibility:

This workshop is available to any farmer or land manager in Devon or Somerset currently in receipt of BPS payments.
