Rural Grants

As BPS is phased out and new schemes under Environmental Land Management (ELMS) take effect, our agents can help secure rural grants for farmers and landowners in Dorset, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Cornwall and Hampshire.


Our Rural Grants experts can help you find the most appropriate the most suitable grant funding for your farming business.  An evolving range of environmental grants, including sustainability, woodland and nature projects as well as those for adding value and improving productivity are available, and our agents closely follow developments to ensure they offer advice on the latest range of grants available, and on policy developments as details surrounding the de-linking of agricultural subsidies and lump-sum exit payments are clarified.

Background Image

We can assist with the identification and application for a wide variety of grants including:

  • Countryside Stewardship & Environmental Land Management Schemes (ELMS)
  • Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI)
  • Mid-tier and higher-tier schemes
  • Wildlife offers
  • Standalone water capital grants
  • Slurry storage & farm infrastructure grants
  • Woodland, Hedgerow and boundary grants
  • Rural Regenerations Grants
  • Final BPS Claims 

Additionally, we can assist with the Registration of land, mapping amendments, cross-compliance and resolving disputes.
