Study Visits

*Application windows for study visits will not be operative for the foreseeable future, due to the Welsh Government regulations on non-essential travel.* 

 

Spending time visiting other businesses can be a valuable way to discover improved methods of working, see best practice in action and bring home new ideas to innovate your enterprise.

 

Groups of eligible farmers and foresters can apply for a maximum of £3,000 per group to fund 50% of the cost of a study visit within the UK for a period of up to 4 days. 

Each group must submit an application form to request funding and is expected to keep a record of its findings to share with others on their return. 

 

*The application window for Study Visits is closed.*
