Farming Connect…helping you drive your business forward

Our new, enhanced programme is providing support which is transforming the business prospects of thousands of farmers and foresters.

Many services are fully funded, others are subsidised by up to 80%

To benefit from all that’s now on offer, you will need to register for the new programme.  Individuals registered under the previous programme will need to re-register.  

Check the eligibility criteria, which has now been widened to include more farmers and foresters with smaller holdings, new categories of self-employed contractors and food businesses.
