The final phase of The Future Farming Resilience Fund has opened, bringing £32M of support funding for farmers and land managers.

First launched in 2021, the Future Farming Resilience Fund is designed to provide business support to farmers adapting to the agricultural transition, via grants awarded to various organisations in the agriculture industry.

Different advice providers offer different kinds of support, in different sectors. Many of them offer one-to-one consultations and farm visits, followed up by recommendations in a report. Others provide workshops, webinars, tours and networking opportunities to help farmers get support from other farmers. 

Any farmer or land manager who receives BPS in England is eligible for free business advice during the early years of the agricultural transition.
