Who is this event for?

This event is for farmers already taking part in the Farm for the Future programme, and those interested in learning more about it and potentially joining for next year. There is no obligation to join the scheme if you attend this event – just come along and meet the team for a chat (no hard sell, we promise!)

Any owner-occupied or tenant farm currently in receipt of BPS in England can take part if you have not already received free support through the Future Farm Resilience Fund. If you are unsure whether this applies to you, please get in touch with Steph who can confirm your eligibility.
