Government Announcement on the Future of Farm Support

On the 30th November the Government published ‘The Path to Sustainable Farming: An Agricultural Transition Plan 2021 to 2024’.

To accompany the Agricultural Transition Plan’s publication, they have created the booklet called Farming is Changing. The booklet summarises the Agricultural Transition Plan, and was written with farmers and land managers in mind.

Countryside Stewardship and additional grants to be expanded from 2021-2024 with a focus on Sustainable Agriculture, Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery
